Washington Redskins legend Mark Rypien — a former Super Bowl MVP — was arrested for domestic violence in Washington on Sunday after an incident with his wife.
Cops responded to an intersection in Spokane — where 56-year-old Rypien and his wife had gotten into an altercation. When cops arrived, the ex-QB was standing by his vehicle. His wife was lying in the grass nearby.
Officers spoke with both Mark and his wife for about 45 minutes, according to KHQ … and although his wife was evaluated by paramedics, she did not require further medical attention.
Rypien — who played for the Washington Redskins from 1986 to 1993 — was placed in handcuffs and taken to a nearby station where he was booked for 4th-degree domestic violence.
He’s due in court Monday morning.
Rypien was the MVP of Super Bowl XXVI — and played in the league until 2002.
