Former NFL quarterback Erik Kramer was charged with a misdemeanor after allegedly assaulting his wife at their Agoura Hills home, prosecutors said Thursday.

Kramer, 53, faces a single count of battery in connection with the June 13 incident, according to a news release from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

He is accused of physically assaulting his wife during a domestic dispute, prosecutors said.

An Encino native, Kramer played 10 seasons in the National Football League, retiring in 1999, according to the NFL’s website.
