BATON ROUGE - A former LSU football player has been arrested for allegedly choking his girlfriend, then taking her cellphone so she could not call for help.

East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff's deputies responded to an apartment late Sunday night after the girlfriend of 25-year-old DeAngelo Peterson reported that he attacked her during an argument.

Peterson was booked on a count of simple battery as well as bench warrants for speeding.

Peterson committed to LSU in 2007 as a top wide receiver prospect in Louisiana but converted to tight end.

Peterson went undrafted following his senior season and signed a free agent contract with the St. Louis in 2012. He also spent time with the Washington and Denver.

It was unclear whether Peterson has an attorney.
