Ex-Bill McIntyre arrested on misdemeanor battery charge

By Mark Gaughan

Former Buffalo Bills fullback Corey McIntyre, whose contract with the team ran out in March, was arrested after an argument in his home and charged with misdemeanor battery, according to police in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

McIntyre, 34, played for the Bills for the past three seasons. He has been on the free-agent market and unsigned since the unrestricted free agency season began two months ago. According to the Port St. Lucie police affidavit, McIntyre was in his bathtub when he got into an argument with a woman in his house about information on his cellphone. When the woman tried to throw the cellphone in the bathtub, McIntyre told police he tried to get out of the tub and pulled on the shower curtain, and the curtain rod struck the woman. The police report says McIntyre chased after the woman and pulled on her shirt, causing it to rip. He was interviewed by police about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday. He posted bail at Port St. Lucie County Jail. 

Later Wednesday, it was announced that a benefit McIntyre was supposed to attend Saturday to support a cousin of his has been postponed. Jahwann McIntyre, a Martin County firefighter seriously injured in a Dec. 27 arson, was scheduled to be the beneficiary of a celebrity softball game to be held in Port St. Lucie. Members of the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office and the St. Lucie County Fire District were to play against McIntyre and other professional athletes. The arrest was reported today in the Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers and ProFootballTalk.com.
