  • NFL running back Jonathan Dwyer has been arrested for head-butting his wife and breaking her nose, and then punching her face the following day at his home in Phoenix, the US police have said.

    The violence was linked to her refusing his sexual advances, reports said.

    Dwyer, who has a year-long $730,000 contract with the Arizona Cardinals, has been charged with aggravated assault. He was later released on a bond of $25,000.
