Atlanta Falcons safety William Moore was arrested Thursday and charged with battery after an alleged altercation with a woman.

Moore was granted $2,500 bond and released from jail after a Friday morning court appearance, Fulton County Police spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Police said the Pro-Bowler got into an argument with a woman, allegedly grabbing her shoulder and throwing her phone to the ground.

“We are aware of the situation involving William Moore and are in the process of gathering more information,” a Falcons spokesman said in a statement released to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Because this is now a legal matter, the club will have no further comment at this time.”

Moore signed a 5-year, $30 million deal to stay with Atlanta in March.
