Sapp reportedly had an altercation with two escorts at Sapp's hotel room early Monday morning after a dispute broke out about money. Cops say the two women had injuries that indicated they were involved in a struggle, but Sapp denies assaulting the women.

In addition to being a seven-time Pro Bowl defensive end in the NFL for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders, Sapp was the runner-up in the seventh season of Dancing With the Stars. Sapp was previously charged with domestic abuse in 2010, but the charges were later dropped.
