Former Packers Great Green Charged With Child Abuse

Antigo, WI, United States /

(Green Bay, WI) ¬†— ¬†Former Packers’ running back Ahman Green is free on a signature bond after he was charged Monday with felony child abuse and misdemeanor disorderly conduct. The 40-year-old Green is accused of pushing his 15-year-old daughter and striking her in the head Sunday night at his home in Ledgeview, near Green Bay — and according to prosecutors, the two got into a day long argument about not cleaning dishes as he expected her to do to get an allowance. A public defender appeared at Green’s first court appearance on video from the Brown County Jail, and he called the incident a “constitutional issue” of parental rights. Green must hire his own lawyer, and he’ll have time to do that before he’s due back in court July eleventh. Green played for the Packers from 2000 through ’06 and again in 2009, and he’s the team’s all time leading rusher.
