American football star Sapp, a runner-up on Dancing With The Stars in 2008, is accused of attacking his lover in the early hours of Saturday at the Shore Club Hotel in Miami Beach, Florida.

An arrest report filed by the Miami Beach Police Department indicated the victim had "a swollen right knee and bruises on the back of her neck".

Sapp's partner told authorities he had pulled her out of bed and choked her, before throwing her out of the room, reports TMZ.com.

Sapp, a TV sports commentator, was released from jail on Sunday (07Feb10), but NFL Network executives refused to allow him to appear on air during the Super Bowl pending an investigation into the altercation.
