GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Erik Walden has been arrested on suspicion of felony domestic violence/substantial battery and will remain in the Brown County Jail until at least Monday.

Walden allegedly assaulted his live-in girlfriend at the couple's apartment in Lawrence, just outside of Green Bay. Because of the Thanksgiving holiday, the Brown County Court is closed for the weekend, so while Walden's teammates have the next three days off following the team's 27-15 Thanksgiving Day victory at Detroit, Walden will remain in jail.

The Packers issued a statement Friday saying, "The Packers organization is aware of the situation involving Erik Walden. We are in the process of gathering more information and will refrain from making any further comment."

    What I don't understand is that if these guys are not happy with there girlfriends, send them to the curb, they are celebrities, they can get alot of women if they want, so why do they have to half kill them.

      Power kick. The girlfriend needs to kick him out or leave him depending on whose place it is.
