LITTLETON, Colo. -- Denver Broncos rookie tight end Richard Quinn has been arrested on harassment and domestic violence charges.

College: North Carolina
The Arapahoe County Sheriff's Department says Quinn was arrested early Monday afternoon after a woman called 911. The woman told deputies that her live-in boyfriend, Quinn, grabbed and shook her to the ground during an argument and grabbed the phone from her while she was trying to dial 911.
The 22-year-old woman told deputies that Quinn also grabbed her cell phone. She says she ran to another house in the suburban Denver neighborhood to call police.
Deputies say Quinn told them he grabbed the woman only after she started hitting him in the face, but had no visible marks on his face.
Quinn was being held in jail.
