Chris Rainey, January 10th, 2013

Former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Chris Rainey was charged with battery after he slapped his girlfriend; the two were arguing over his cell phone. Rainey pulled his girlfriend out of a car and slapped her in the face with an open hand. Both fell to the ground and Rainey later chased and grabbed her to retrieve his phone. It's not the first domestic violence arrest for Rainey, who is currently a free agent. He was arrested on Sept. 14th, 2010 while attending the University of Florida after sending a threatening text message to his on-again, off-again girlfriend that read, "Time to Die Bitch u and ur???" Rainey was charged with felony aggravated stalking, and then-coach Urban Meyer immediately dismissed him from the team.
