According to the Brown County Sheriff's Office, deputies had contact with Green on Sunday, June 25 at 11:30 p.m. and he was taken into custody for physical abuse of a child in a family related incident.

Court documents said Green and his 15-year-old daughter got into an argument about her doing dishes. Green allegedly asked her to do them and she did not want to, the criminal complaint said.

After the argument escalated, Green's daughter said he threw her to the ground and against kitchen cabinets, according to court documents. She told police he also hit her in the face and ripped the collar of shirt during the argument.

According to the criminal complaint, Green admitted to hitting his daughter on the head with an open hand.

Officers also recovered a torn shirt from the scene, the criminal complaint said. 

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

Green joined the Packers in 2000, went to Texas as a free agent and then returned to the Packers for a season in 2009.

Green will be back in court July 11.
