Former Eagles defensive end Hugh Douglas was arrested and charged with third-degree assault and second-degree strangulation Tuesday, according to WFSB in Hartford, Conn.
Citing court documents, the report claims Douglas got into a fight with a woman at the Marriott Hotel at Adriaen's Landing in Hartford. He allegedly "grabbed her by the neck" and "slammed her into the walls several times."
Douglas told investigators that the victim’s injuries occurred during rough sex. He’s next due in court Oct. 21.
Last month, Douglas was fired by ESPN after reportedly directing racial slurs at a coworker in a nightclub. Before joining ESPN in 2011, Douglas had been a regular on 94 WIP and Fox 29.
Douglas spent 10 seasons in the NFL -- six with the Eagles -- and recorded 80 career sacks. He made three Pro Bowls with the Eagles.
