Giants kicker Josh Brown was cited in 2015 for violating a protective order that followed his arrest on domestic violence charges, ESPN reports.

The New York Daily News reports that Brown was arrested for the incident and charged with a misdemeanor.

Brown was not allowed within 500 feet of his wife’s residence at the time. His ex-wife, Molly, called police claiming to see Brown drive past her house on July 14, 2015. Brown was arrested on domestic violence charges in May 2015, though the charges were later dropped.

Brown was recently suspended one game for the arrest, in violation of the league’s conduct policy.

Pierre-Paul: Why should Brown be cut?

Giants owner John Mara said this week that the Giants were aware and “comfortable” of the circumstances when they decided to re-sign Brown in 2015, and that Brown had been undergoing counseling for “a couple years.”

Brown’s ex-wife said that he was physically violent towards her more than 20 times.
