Free agent fullback Corey McIntyre, who played in all 16 games for the Buffalo Bills in each of the past three seasons, was charged Wednesday with misdemeanor battery in Port St. Lucie, Fla., according to local news network WPTV. 

A charity softball game was scheduled for Saturday that he planned to host to benefit local firefighters, including his cousin who was seriously burned in December after responding to an arson incident. The event, however, which was to be attended by a number of his former Bills teammates, has since been cancelled for "unforeseen circumstances."

McIntyre, 34, was at his home with a woman in the early morning hours of Wednesday when they allegedly began arguing over information in his phone, according to the network citing the arrest affidavit. McIntyre was in a bathtub at the time when the woman tried to throw the phone in the bath water. He attempted to get out of the tub by pulling the shower curtain but the rod hit the woman and then he reportedly chased after her, ripping her shirt as she attempted to leave the home.

McIntyre posted bail and faces a misdemeanor charge for the incident. In 2009, he was arrested for indecent exposure but pleaded not guilty to the charge, which was later dropped.
