An assistant coach for the Columbus Lions turned himself in to authorities Monday afternoon on a misdemeanor warrant for battery, police said.
Edward E. King, 42, posted a $1,000 bond and was released from the Muscogee County Jail.
An arrest report shows the charge is related to family violence. The report says the victim received a "visible injury" but was not treated.
King also coaches football and is an in-school suspension facilitator at Glenwood School in Smiths Station, Ala, according to the school's website. A Phenix City native, King played football at Central High and Auburn University.
He was drafted in 1991 by the Cleveland Browns as the 29th overall pick in the NFL draft.
