The Baltimore Ravens released defensive lineman Ufomba Kamalu on Wednesday, the same day he was charged with domestic violence.

Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic noted Kamalu was cut by Baltimore on Wednesday.

The arrest was reported by the Baltimore County Government website, which noted Kamalu got into a verbal altercation with a woman before it turned violent. He was then arrested on Thursday morning.

Per the official report:

“Officers spoke with the victim, who suffered from a visible injury. Officers¬†determined that an argument between the woman and Kamalu escalated into a physical altercation, at which time Kamalu assaulted the woman, causing the injury. Kamalu was not present at the time officers responded for the incident so a warrant was issued for his arrest the same day and served yesterday morning.”

A former Miami Hurricane who went undrafted out of college in 2016, Kamalu was part of the New England Patriots team that won Super Bowl LII. He has appeared in 15 games as a pro, tallying 12 tackles and three sacks.
