Former NFL player and ESPN analyst Hugh Douglas has been arrested after allegedly choking and attacking a woman at a hotel, according to WFSB in Hartford, Conn.



The 2013 offseason was a rough one for NFL players and the law. Take a look back at the players arrested before camp ever opened.

Douglas allegedly "grabbed her by the neck" and "slammed her into the walls several times," according to the court papers. Douglas claimed the victim's injuries occurred during rough sex.

Douglas is facing charges of third-degree assault and second-degree strangulation. His next court appearance is Oct. 21.

Douglas, who had a 10-year NFL career with the New York Jets, Philadelphia Eagles and Jacksonville Jaguars, was most recently a regular on the ESPN show "Numbers Never Lie". He reportedly was terminated for an ugly confrontation with co-host Michael Smith in a nightclub.

Douglas was active on Twitter Tuesday night and didn't seem too troubled.
