Warren Sapp pleaded guilty today to one count of domestic violence in Las Vegas, according to TMZ and the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Sapp originally was charged with three counts, but prosecutors dropped two of them in exchange for today’s plea deal, according to the reports.


The charges were from a night in April, when Sapp was accused of assaulting his girlfriend, Chalyce Moore, at the M Resort. Here’s the details from the police report, as described by the Review-Journal:

The former defensive lineman threw a margarita in Moore’s face and followed her into a resort lobby, where police said he was seen on surveillance recordings pulling on her arm and knocking her off her feet.

Police said the altercation continued all the way back to Moore’s home at the Boca Raton Condos, on West Serene Avenue near Las Vegas Boulevard South. During the drive Moore’s left middle finger was bitten so hard that it began to bleed and swell, according to the report.

Moore told police that Sapp began to pack his things as soon as they got inside her apartment, but the fight still continued. She “ended up on the floor but did not know how,” and Sapp, wearing white Jordan sandals, was standing on the right side of her face, according to the report.

The Review-Journal said that as part of the deal Sapp must pay $2,895 in fines and restitution, do 48 hours of community service, undergo domestic violence counseling for six months, and stay out of trouble with the law for six months. The court also banned him from contact with Moore.
