Underwood pleaded not guilty to a count of disorderly conduct Friday after being charged in an incident with his wife the night the team got their Super Bowl rings last month.|||||||
Authorities allege the 25-year-old Underwood ripped a necklace off his wife, Brandie, and pushed her to the ground at their home following the June 16 ring ceremony. Brandie Underwood has said the incident has been blown out of proportion and that's she's never been afraid of her husband even though she filed for divorce in May. She said earlier this month they are still living together and receiving counseling. Underwood is scheduled to face trial on Sept. 26.
Underwood has been released on a $1,000 signature bond after his arrest in a domestic incident. WLUK-TV reports Underwood appeared in court Wednesday to face misdemeanor disorderly conduct charges after police were called to his house, just hours after the team got its Super Bowl rings June 16. The complaint says he ripped a necklace off his wife's neck.|||||||
The Packers are aware of the charge, but declined further comment. Earlier this year, Underwood pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor count of soliciting a prostitute in a June 2010 incident at a resort cabin in Lake Delton, Wis., after two women alleged he sexually assaulted them. Underwood paid a $379 fine. A call placed Wednesday to his lawyer in that case was not immediately returned.
