TAMPA, FLA. (AP) - Oakland Raiders tackle Cornell Green has been arrested on a domestic violence charge in Florida.

Tampa police say Green became violent Saturday during an argument at his home there with the mother of his two children. Police say Green slammed 30-year-old Teriyonal Ebony Flowers into a wall, then struck her right arm with an aluminum mop handle.

The former player at Central Florida then fled the house. He was arrested at Tampa International Airport before a flight he had planned to take to Oakland, Calif.

The 32-year-old tackle was being held Sunday at the Hillsborough County jail on a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

Jail records did not show an attorney for Green. Message left at his agent’s office and cell phone were not immediately returned.
