Ex-Buc WR Keyshawn arrested

CALABASAS, Calif. — The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says former Buc and Southern California receiver Keyshawn Johnson was arrested after a report of a domestic dispute.

A Sheriff's Department statement says deputies responded to a residence in Calabasas at 12:48 a.m. Monday and determined the resident and his ex-girlfriend were involved in a domestic dispute, and the resident was arrested on a charge of misdemeanor domestic battery.

Johnson smashed the phone of his girlfriend, identified as "Jennifer" in his statement, causing a gash to her hand, celebrity website tmz.com reported.

Johnson, 41, was released on $20,000 bond.

"I would like to apologize to my family, friends, fans, colleagues and, of course, to Jennifer for what happened last night at my home in Calabasas," Johnson said in a statement. "… I can say now, without hesitation, that I did not hit, grab or strike Jennifer, nor would I ever touch her or any woman in anger. "

Johnson had 298 receptions for the Bucs from 2000-03. He began his career with the Jets (1996-99) and played for the Cowboys (2004-06) and Panthers (2006).

He's currently an ESPN commentator and analyst. ESPN is looking into the incident.

PRYOR TRADED: Oakland dealt QB Terrelle Pryor to the Seahawks for a seventh-round pick in next month's draft. Pryor asked to be traded after losing his starting job to undrafted rookie Matt McGloin last season, and the Raiders acquired Matt Schaub from the Texans in the offseason. Former USF QB B.J. Daniels is on Seattle's roster.

LIONS: Ndamukong Suh will be a no-show at the team's voluntary minicamp this week, the Associated Press reported. The two-time All-Pro DT reportedly will attend the team's voluntary workouts in May and mandatory minicamp next month. Suh is entering the final year of his contract.
