    Former football star Warren Sapp was arrested Saturday following an alleged domestic violence incident at a Miami Beach hotel, police said.

    Sapp was charged with one count of misdemeanor domestic battery and is expected to appear before a Miami-Dade County judge Sunday, Miami Beach police spokesman Juan Sanchez said.

    Shortly after officials confirmed the charge, the NFL Network, for which Sapp is an analyst, spokesman Dennis Johnson said in an e-mail to The Associated Press that Sapp wouldn't be part of Super Bowl coverage this weekend.

    ``We have been made aware of the arrest of Warren Sapp by the Miami Beach Police Department,'' a network statement said. ``In light of these circumstances, Warren Sapp will not appear on NFL Network while we review the matter.''

    The domestic violence allegation was reported around noon Saturday and detectives interviewed Sapp later that day, Sanchez said. The incident occurred early Saturday morning at the Shore Club hotel, according to a police news release.

    A telephone message left for Sapp's attorney was not immediately returned, nor was an e-mail.

    Sanchez said Sapp was expected to be transferred to Miami-Dade County jail Saturday.

    Sapp, a former defensive tackle, played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Oakland Raiders during his NFL career. He was also once a contestant on ABC's ``Dancing with the Stars.''

    Sapp was in South Florida as part of the NFL Network's coverage of Sunday's Super Bowl between the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts.

    That is some bull... Not defending Sapp but the chances of this being a money grab is high in my opinion.

    Now in a week it will end up being bogus and he misses out on the SB.

    If he is guilty put him under the jail but this is the drawback of being famous/NFL status. Every chick is a crap shoot for this type of stuff.

    If he did indeed do something, then fine. However, if this is just somebody trying to con him then he needs to have some remedy for missing the game as an analyst (in other works, not being able to work).
