Colorado DB arrested for domestic violence

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Colorado has suspended freshman defensive back Josh Moten indefinitely following his arrest on Tuesday morning.  Moten was arrested and charged with third-degree assault and domestic violence after getting into an argument with an ex-girlfriend. 

Apparently the argument started when Moten's ex-girlfriend demanded a pair of earrings she'd given him as a gift back, and then slapped him.  Moten then responded by shoving her.  Which, while I don't condone any kind of violence against women, seems like a pretty lame reason to be arrested for domestic violence to me.  Even the police seem to agree.

Police commander Tim McGraw -- no, not that Tim McGraw -- said that the altercation was "real minor" and that the investigation is ongoing, and could eventually result in the arrest of Moten's ex-girlfriend.  He said the police were forced to arrest Moten because the girl later reported feeling pain after Moten pushed her.

The only reason there was a domestic violence charge added was due to the relationship the two had in the past.
