Former Alabama running back Trent Richardson was taken into custody by Hoover Police on Thursday night for domestic violence charges.

Richardson, a former 3rd overall pick in the NFL Draft, was allegedly involved in a dispute with a female at Walmart that continued when they returned to their hotel.

Here’s what the police said in a statement:

Officers were able to make contact with an adult male and adult female who were involved in a domestic altercation. After interviewing both parties it was determined that the two individuals had been arguing earlier while at the Walmart on John Hawkins Parkway and that the dispute continued after they arrived back at the hotel. At some point the situation turned physical and the female sustained injuries (scratches and bruising) about her face.

Richardson has been charged with third-degree domestic violence. He was later released from the Hoover City jail on $1,000 bond.
