This isn’t the first time Rainey has been arrested for bad behavior with a woman. In 2010 he was arrested for sending texts to his girlfriend saying “Time to Die”.
This time according to Profootballtalk.com he is being accused of slapping his girlfriend in the face after she took his phone.
I will assume she was taking his phone because she believe he was contacting other females. These type of altercations happen often between men and women, but not an excuse for a man to put his hands on a woman.
He is still being held custody and has been charged with one misdemenaor count of simple battery (dating violence).
Rainey has been released by Steelers.
