Larry Birdine, a former Oklahoma defensive end, faces two domestic abuse charges stemming from a July 2 incident in Norman.

Birdine, who played at OU between 2003-06, was charged in Cleveland County District Court on Monday with domestic assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and domestic assault and battery in the presence of a minor.

The Norman Transcript was the first to report the arrest.

Birdine, 30, hasn’t played professional football since the 2010 season with the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League.

University of Oklahoma police responded to a report of domestic disturbance when they found a female victim with blood on her head and face. Staples were later needed to close a head wound, according to an affidavit, the Transcript reported. (Tulsa World)
