Atlanta Falcons safety William Moore is in trouble with the law.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that Moore was arrested and charged with Simple Battery on Thursday, according to Fulton County jail records.

Tracy Flanagan, public affairs officer at the Fulton County Sheriff's Office, later confirmed the arrest and charge. Moore's first appearance hearing is at Fulton County Jail at 11 a.m. on Friday. No bond was set.

"We are aware of the situation involving William Moore and are in the process of gathering more information," the Falcons said in a statement. "Because this is now a legal matter, the club will have no further comment at this time."

The details surrounding the charge are unknown at this time. The arrest comes a month after Moore, 27, signed a five-year, $30 million extension with the Falcons.

A second-round selection in the 2009 NFL Draft, Moore started 12 games last season, finishing with 105 tackles and four interceptions. The performance earned Moore his first trip to the Pro Bowl.

Moore has had no prior issues with the law in his four years in the NFL.

FLOWERY BRANCH – Falcons safety William Moore, who recently re-signed with the team after a playing in his first Pro Bowl, was arrested and charged with simple battery on Thursday, according to Fulton County Jail Records.
Moore was booked into Fulton County Jail, according to jail records.

“We are aware of the situation involving William Moore and are in the process of gathering more information," a Falcons spokesperson said in a statement released to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "Because this is now a legal matter, the club will have no further comment at this time.”

No details were immediately available about the arrest.

The Falcons reached a five-year, $30 million deal with safety William Moore on March 9.
“It’s a relief,” said Moore, who had $14 million of the deal guaranteed. “That was my ultimate goal, to continue to be here in Atlanta and try to get the Super Bowl. I’m very pleased with the negotiations.”
Moore, who made the Pro Bowl last season as an alternate, was set to become an unrestricted free agent.
Moore, who turns 28 in May, was drafted in the second round (55th overall) of the 2009 draft.
Moore missed most of his rookie season with knee and hamstring injuries.
Moore broke into the lineup in 2010, starting 15 of 16 games. He had 108 tackles and five interceptions.
In 2011, Moore started 11 of 12 games and had 62 tackles and two interceptions.
Last season, Moore turned in a fine season with 105 tackles and four interceptions. He went to the Pro Bowl when San Francisco’s Pro Bowl safeties Donte Whitner and Dashon Goldson reached the Super Bowl.

Damn let's just hope he didn't actually strike the woman. I don't think it'll be anything serious, since this is his first offense.

Seems to me this is probably being blown out of proportion. If anyone else "grabs a woman's shoulder during a heated conversation" that isn't an NFL player the police aren't called and no one is arrested.
