A police statement says officers received a call about yelling coming from a guest room at a hotel Thursday night.

Hoover police responded to a 911 call for a reported domestic disturbance at the Hyatt Place Hotel at 8:04 p.m.

Hoover police Capt. Gregg Rector said Richardson was "cooperative" and was "arrested without incident". At some point their argument turned physical, which led to the woman being left with bruises and scratches. She was treated for her injuries at the scene. Her name has not been released.

Richardson's last appearance in a regular season National Football League game took place in a December 2014 Colts' victory over the Patriots in which he ran for 11 yards on six carries. Bail was set at $1,000. He'll be released when the bond is posted.

Richardson was a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2011 following a three-year career with the Crimson Tide during which he rushed for 3,243 yards and 35 touchdowns between 2009-11. After a decent rookie season, he was traded to the Indianapolis Colts, where he remained through 2014.

In 2013, Richardson was sued for assault by two women but wasn't charged with a crime. Richardson spent the 2015 preseason with the Oakland Raiders and 2016 with the Baltimore Ravens, but didn't make either team.
