Former NFL quarterback Mark Rypien was arrested on Sunday night in Spokane, Washington. According to reports the Super Bowl MVP was booked on a 4th Degree Assault/Domestic Violence charge
Former Super Bowl MVP Mark Rypien was jailed Sunday night and is expected to face a domestic violence charge before a judge Monday morning, following an incident involving his wife that happened in north Spokane late Sunday afternoon.
Our crews arrived at the scene of Maple and Garland just after 5:30 p.m., at the same time as the first responding officer. Rypien was standing in the grass of the Washington Trust Bank there, with his wife lying in the grass. At this time it is not clear why the couple had stopped at the intersection, how police were called to the scene, and who placed the call.
Spokane Police officers spent about 45 minutes speaking separately with both Rypien and his wife. Around 6:15 p.m., two officers called Rypien over to the patrol car and placed him in handcuffs, then loaded him into the back of a police cruiser. His wife was seen to be crying as he was arrested.
This isn’t the first domestic violence incident for Rypien and at the age of 56 it isn’t likely going to end anytime soon, this appears to be who he is.
