Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy was arrested early Tuesday morning on a domestic assault charge in Charlotte. He spent the night in jail (not uncommon in domestic incidents; it's called a "cooling off period") and appeared in court on Wednesday morning.

The Mecklenburg County judge handed Hardy a $17,000 bond along with several other requirements.

Hardy is expected to be released later Wednesday.

The victim in the case was identified as 24-year-old Nicole Holder, who claimed she had a previous relationship with Hardy.

The two parties contest the facts of the incident:

Hardy was also ordered to have no contact with the victim; the victim's attorney filed a protective order against Hardy as well.

Additionally, Hardy was ordered to attend three AA meetings because there was alcohol involved in the incident.
