Steelers running back Chris Rainey is a pretty good football player, he just can’t seem to shake his penchant for domestic violence.
The Miami Herald is reporting that Rainey was arrested this morning in Gainesville, Fla., on charges of slapping his girlfriend in the face during an argument over a cell phone.
Rainey was charged with one misdemenaor count of simple batter. He remains in custody awaiting his first court appearance.
According to a police spokesman, a 911 call was placed by a witnesses who reported seeing an argument between Gainey and his girlfriend, after she took his cell phone and got a car trying to get away from him.
Rainey reportedly went to the passenger side of the car, pulled his girlfriend out of the car, and slapped her in the face. They both fell and Rainey chased after her trying to get the phone back from her.
Rainey is starting to be bad for business, and this is not a good look going into the off-season. Rainey was arrested once before for stalkng after he sent a text out to a ex girlfriend telling her it was “time to die.”
