PHOENIX -

A player for the Arizona Cardinals was arrested after being accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend.

Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington was charged with two counts of aggravated assault. His bond is set at $4,200.

He's already had some trouble this off-season. He's been suspended for 4 games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Right after the alleged assault Wednesday evening, police could not find Washington.

Thursday, police said they talked to Washington and his attorney briefly, but he hadn't shown up for an interview at Phoenix Police headquarters.

The allegation against him is pretty serious. A woman called police to tell them Washington assaulted her inside of her apartment in Ahwatukee on Wednesday afternoon.

"From the police presence that was out here, it seemed pretty sad to know that someone like that was that badly sick," says neighbor Chris Ransom.

Police got there and say the alleged victim had marks on her throat. She said told police she got into an argument with Washington and he choked her. The two have a 5-month-old baby girl together.

Thursday morning, she didn't want to talk, saying she'd been advised not to talk about what happened.

"I've seen her out every now and then, she seems really nice, kind of waves," says Ransom.

According to court records, she has not let Washington see his baby. In a motion filed by Washington he claims, she's "making demands for money in return for parenting time."

The following is text messages between Washington and the alleged victim.

Washington: "Looking forward to seeing my baby tomorrow."

Baby's mother: "Not at my house..."

Washington: "That's fine I will come pick her up. Cool with you? My mom wants to see her."

Baby's mother: "Nope sorry we're busy."

On the Cardinals website, the team wrote, "These are serious accusations that we are closely monitoring. Until all the facts are determined, and out of respect for the process, we will decline any further comment at this point."

    Belgian artist Baloji kicks off tour in New York

    To say the 6 feet 5 inch Baloji has a presence would be an understatement. The Belgian artist commands the stage with his mix of hip hop, funk, and rap. The 34-year-old rocked out Webster Hall back in January. Now he's back in New York City kicking off a month-long tour. "It's one of the most inspiring cities on Earth so it's always great to be here," Baloji says.

    New York has never known a Central Park without that rhythmic click-clacking. But if Mayor Bill de Blasio gets his way, he'll put those hooves out to pasture, replacing them with a different noise-maker. Actually, excluding its horn the electric carriage makes little noise at all. It runs on lithium-ion batteries, has a variable-speed a/c motor, and is relatively silent, says Jason Wenig.
