MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - Former NFL star Warren Sapp was released from jail yesterday on $1,500 bond, a day after being arrested for allegedly choking a woman in his hotel room.

Sapp was released at about 11 a.m. yesterday - a time when the NFL Network analyst would have been helping with Super Bowl coverage.

The network pulled Sapp off the air until it investigates the incident.

Police arrested Sapp on Saturday on one charge of misdemeanor domestic battery. An arrest affidavit says the incident happened around 5 a.m. Saturday in the former defensive tackle's hotel room at the Shore Club on Miami Beach.

Sapp's attorney said the former player is taking the matter seriously and will cooperate with authorities.

The woman said she had been dating Sapp about 2 years. She told officers the two were partying with a large group of friends when she got tired and went to lay down.

Sapp entered hours later, pulled her out of bed and tried to get her out of the room, according to the complaint. The complaint says he yelled at the woman about men she had been hanging out with and men listed in her cell phone.

Sapp was a star defensive tackle for Tampa Bay and Oakland during his NFL career.
