The 24-year-old athlete was arrested by Redondo Beach police in the early morning hours of Oct. 20 at Little Company of Mary Hospital in Torrance after officers were notified that a woman was being treated in the emergency room “for injuries that were possibly received during a domestic violence incident,” according to a statement from the Redondo Beach Police Department.
