New Orleans Saints linebacker Junior Gallette was arrested early this morning in Kenner, Louisiana and charged with misdemeanor Domestic violence and simple battery.

Gallette’s cousin, Terrance Banks, was also arrested in the incident. Both are expected to post bond today.

TMZ reports that the woman appeared as if an earring had been ripped out of her ear.  The report also says that the woman described herself to Kenner police as a girlfriend/personal assistant who helps Galette cook and clean at his home.  Galette described the woman as a "dancer" who was supposed to leave the night before, but stayed until the morning.
