Falcons defensive tackle Ra’Shede Hageman may be in line for league discipline after being charged with three misdemeanors in a domestic violence case this March.

D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that the charges stemmed from an incident with the mother of his child in March. Details of what happened are scarce, but the DeKalb County court system shows that Hageman faces charges of battery family violence, cruelty to children in the third degree and interference with a call for emergency help.

Ledbetter reports that the NFL has been in contact with the team about the charges.

Hageman, a 2014 second-round pick, did not play against the Buccaneers on Sunday. His scratch was attributed to the team’s plan to play a lot of nickel against Tampa.
