Falcons’ William Moore released following arrest

Atlanta Falcons safety William Moore has been released from jail

on $2,500 bond following his arrest on a misdemeanor simple battery


Moore, a Pro Bowl alternate in 2012, was granted the bond during

his first appearance before a Fulton County magistrate judge Friday

morning. Fulton County sheriff’s spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan said

Sunday Moore was released late Friday.

Atlanta police spokesman Carlos Campos says Moore was arrested

Thursday after officers were called to a Northwest Atlanta address

and advised that Moore and a woman were involved in an argument.

Campos says during the argument Moore ”threw the victim’s phone

and grabbed the victim’s shoulder.”

The Falcons released a statement Thursday night saying the team

was gathering more information.
