GREEN BAY, Wis. — Former Green Bay Packers running back Ahman Green was charged Monday with felony child abuse after his 15-year old daughter told police he punched her in the face.

According to the criminal complaint, Green’s daughter told police that he struck her in the face in a dispute over getting her to do the dishes. She also said he threw her to the ground and against kitchen cabinets.

A court commissioner ordered Green’s release Monday on a $2,500 signature bond after ordering him to have no contact with his daughter or others who may have witnessed the incident.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette reports Green’s next court appearance was set for July 11.

Green was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 2014. He is the team’s all-time leading rusher and a four-time Pro Bowl selection.

Green starred at Nebraska, then spent the first two seasons of his 12-year NFL career in Seattle. He played for Houston in 2007-08, but spent most of his career in Green Bay, his last season coming in 2009.

Packers Hall Of Famer Ahman Green Joins The Joe & Ebo Show

MADISON | With the Packers currently thin at the running back position, would their all-time leading rusher be willing to come back and play if he got the call? “Hell yeah I would go,” Ahman Green told the Joe & Ebo Show. “What would be the hesitation? It’s something that I love to do,” he continued.

Ahman Green also shared his insight on the the possibility of Adrian Peterson coming to Titletown and if Ty Montgomery can be the #1 option for the upcoming season.

Outside of football, Ahman is very active with charities, his foundation, a leading spokesman for the Alzheimers Association of Wisconsin, and an avid fan of video games, comic books, superheroes and even has a role in a few movies.
