GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona Cardinals running backs coach and former San Jose State player James Saxon has been charged in Indianapolis with two counts of domestic battery stemming from an alleged incident in May.

One of the counts is a felony that includes domestic battery committed in the presence of a child less than 16 years old.

An attorney listed as representing Saxon did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the case Friday.

Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said Saxon has been placed on administrative leave. Kingsbury added that the team knew about Saxon’s arrest when it happened in May.

“We are aware of the incident and notified the NFL as required,” the Cardinals said in a statement. “The matter is currently under review pursuant to league policies. After consultation with the league office, James has been placed on paid administrative leave. We will have no further comment pending additional proceedings.”

ESPN first reported the arrest.

Saxon is a longtime running backs coach who has been with the Cardinals since 2019. He was the running backs coach for the Miami Dolphins from 2000 to 2019.

He was part of the 1986 and 1987 Spartans teams that went undefeated in the Pacific Coast Athletic Association, going 10-2 each season and reaching the California Bowl. He was the second-leading rusher and receiver on the ’87 team before being selected by the Chiefs in the sixth round of the 1988 NFL Draft. He played eight years in the NFL from 1988 to 1995.

According to online records, the next step in Saxon’s case is on Aug. 25, when an attorney’s conference is scheduled.

Manchester United are owned by the Glazer family, who also run the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

It was unclear whether Musk was serious about his bid to buy the Premier League club.

Man Utd are one of the biggest sports teams in the world but have fallen on hard times in recent years.

They haven't won the league since 2013 and their fans have protested many times against the owners.

Musk recently launched a bid to buy Twitter, but that fell through.
