Former Patriots player arrested


Police arrested former Patriots linebacker Ted Johnson and his wife this week on assault and battery charges after a domestic disturbance at the couple’s Weston home.

Johnson, 33, who retired from the NFL last July after 10 seasons and three Super Bowl victories with the Patriots, got in a physical fight Sunday with Jacqueline Johnson at about 8 p.m., according to court documents.

Jacqueline Johnson, 40, called police and told officers that her 6-foot-4 husband twisted her arm behind her back and pushed her into a bookcase, where she hit her head. According to the court documents, she fought back, punching and kicking Ted Johnson.

Weston police arrested the former Patriot and, after questioning, also arrested his wife.
