Giants kicker Josh Brown suspended -- was arrested for domestic violence

Giants kicker Josh Brown has been suspended for one game somehow.

...Brown was arrested in May of 2015 on a domestic violence charge, according to documents obtained by NJ Advance Media.

Brown was suspended Wednesday one game by the NFL for violating its personal conduct policy. It is unclear if the arrest is the reason for his suspension.

Brown was arrested at 3:20 p.m. on May 22, 2015 in Woodinville, Wa., by the King County Sheriff Department on a fourth-degree domestic violence charge, according to a police report. The charge is a misdemeanor, according to the police report. The status of the charge is unclear.

According to public records, a residence shared by Brown and his wife is located at the address Brown was arrested. Brown was booked into the county jail and released on $2,000 bond, according to police documents.

According to the police report, Brown and the victim "quarrelled (sic)." Brown grabbed the victim's wrist while the victim was picking up a phone, according to police.

The victim then called 911, according to the police report, and alleged an assault. The report states the victim had "redness" on the wrist, "and a small cut, possibly from a fingernail."

Brown said, "While I do not agree with the suspension, I will accept it. I have exhausted the appeals process and have no other options along those lines. I will continue to work hard for this team, and I have tremendous confidence in my teammates and in my ability to move on and contribute to the team."

Head coach Ben McAdoo said in a statement: "We have been supportive of Josh and will continue to be, but we accept the league's decision."
