Former Saints and LSU star Tracy Porter has been arrested on drug and domestic battery charges. Sgt. Don Coppola with the Baton Rouge Police Department says on October 5th, the victim alleged she visited Porter to get her keys back from him, then the two became involved in an argument that got physical.
"She said Porter had grabbed her around the arms, neck and facial area," said Coppola. "There were bruises observed to go along with what she was reporting."
Coppolla says the victim and 31-year-old Porter had been in a relationship over the past couple of years. He says Porter did admit to grabbing her.
"But said it was only to protect himself," said Coppola. "So initially this was a verbal argument that turned physical."
