According to the complaint, Underwood is alleged to have ripped a necklace off his wife’s neck before dragging her out to their car and throwing her on the ground. Underwood’s wife had filed for divorce in May.
The incident in question took place on June 16, the night the Packers received their Super Bowl rings, and Underwood is due to appear in court on Wednesday.
In March, the now 25-year-old cornerback plead no contest to soliciting prostitution, a misdemeanor, and was fined $379 following an incident last summer in Lake Delton, Wisconsin where two women had accused Underwood of sexual assault.
Underwood denied the accusations, claiming the sex was consensual. Underwood later admitted that he picked the two women up at a strip club and offered them $250 each “to take pictures” with him at a condo he and six of his Packers teammates were staying during a charity golf weekend.
A 2009 sixth-round pick out of the University of Cincinnati, Underwood appeared in 12 games during the Packers’ Super Bowl season, totaling 10 tackles, all on special teams. Underwood had three more special teams tackles in the post-season, but was inactive for his team’s 31-25 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV.
