*Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has been ordered to stay away from the mother of his 11-month-old son after he allegedly assaulted her at his Phoenix home in October.
According to court papers revealed by TMZ.com, Angela Nazario claims she brought their son to visit Fitzgerald when the former lovers began arguing. She said a playful altercation with the athlete escalated when she swung at the receiver and "may have hit his face."
Nazario, a former Oakland Raiders cheerleader, alleged that Fitzgerald pushed her to her knees, "grabbed me by my hair with both hands on the back of my head very very hard and tossed me across the room."
When she tried to leave, Nazario alleged that Fitzgerald "grabbed the back of my neck and slammed me down on the marble floor ... [I] was disoriented for awhile and could not get up, I remember he mumbled something about 'that's what happens when you try taking my son away from me.'"
Fitzgerald caught 96 passes for a career-high 1,431 yards this season. The Cardinals won the AFC West and host the Falcons on Saturday in a wild-card matchup.
