Warren Sapp is under investigation for an alleged domestic violence incident.

The NFL legend is being investigated for an allegedly physical dispute with a woman at a Las Vegas casino in April. While it’s not clear what exactly took place, the unidentified woman filed a police report. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that she “appeared to have suffered minor injuries.”

No decision has been made yet whether to arrest Sapp on any charges. He is just considered a suspect at this point, but it’s not known if he has spoken to the authorities yet. It’s also unclear what Sapp’s connection to the woman is.

Sapp has had a number of other legal issues in recent years. As Gossip Cop reported in 2010, the Hall of Famer was arrested the day before the Super Bowl on a misdemeanor domestic battery charge for allegedly choking a woman at his hotel. The case was ultimately dropped. Most recently, in February of this year, Sapp was arrested for the solicitation and assault of two prostitutes. That incident, as Gossip Cop noted at the time, took place after the Super Bowl.

Sapp is best known to non-football fans for competing on the seventh season of “Dancing with the Stars” in 2008. He and partner Kym Johnson finished in second, losing to future “DWTS” host Brooke Burke and repeat champion Derek Hough.
