Former LSU tight end accused of choking girlfriend

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A former LSU football player has been arrested for allegedly choking his girlfriend, then taking her cellphone so she could not call for help.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/1BpsNQr ) East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff's deputies responded to an apartment late Sunday night after the girlfriend of 25-year-old DeAngelo Peterson reported that he attacked her during an argument.

Peterson was booked on a count of simple battery as well as bench warrants for speeding.

Peterson committed to LSU in 2007 as a top wide receiver prospect in Louisiana but converted to tight end.

Peterson went undrafted following his senior season and signed a free agent contract with the St. Louis in 2012. He also spent time with the Washington and Denver.

It was unclear whether Peterson has an attorney.
