Saints linebacker Junior Galette arrested on domestic violence charge

New Orleans Saints outside linebacker Junior Galette and his cousin were arrested for allegedly roughing up a woman and were chared with simple battery at his Louisiana home.

The woman said she was an assistant to Galette.

She said the two men jumped her after she spent the night at his house and he then refused to give her money for a cab and ordered her out of the house.

The woman said Galette picked her up and threw her out adn she grabbed a knife to defend herself with Galette using a phone to video record her. That phone was seized by police.

The woman was bleeding from her right ear, had scratches on her face and an earring had been ripped from her ear, police said.

Galette said the woman isn't his girlfriend and is a "dancer."

Galette had 10 sacks last season.
