As it turns out, the defensive tackle that was Warren Sapp might have been the nice guy.

In the real world, Sapp seems to be having more problems.

According to TMZ, Sapp — the Hall of Fame former defensive tackle of the Tampa Bay Bucs —  has been charged with three counts of domestic violence against girlfriend Chalyce Moore. The incident took place April 28th at the M Resort in Las Vegas.

The police report says that Sapp and Moore were arguing, and he threw a margarita in her face in her private cabana by the pool. The two got into a car and left, but the arguing continued, and Sapp is charged with biting her middle finger. When they arrived at her condo, Moore says that Sapp stepped on her face.

All of this is on the heels of Sapp being fired by the NFL Network for being arrested for soliciting two prostitutes after the Super Bowl.

Sapp is due in court on July 23.
