MIDDLETOWN, Conn. —

Police say Detroit Lions safety Amari Spievey has been arrested in his Connecticut hometown after a child support dispute.

The Middletown Press reports Wednesday (http://bit.ly/16ihbiv) the 24-year-old Spievey was arrested Tuesday on charges of third-degree assault, risk of injury to a child and disorderly conduct. His girlfriend, 26-year-old Lisamarie Santos, also was charged with risk of injury and disorderly conduct.

Santos told police Spievey pushed her and put his hand on her neck when they argued. Spievey said he pushed Santos after she grabbed his throat and punched his chest while he held their 2-year-old daughter.

They were to appear in court Wednesday. It's not immediately known who is representing them.

The Lions said they had no immediate comment. Spievey has played three seasons for Detroit, which drafted him in 2010. He recently agreed to a one-year contract.
