Carolina Panthers Pro Bowl defensive end Greg Hardy has been charged in an incident of alleged domestic violence involving his girlfriend.
"We are very disappointed to learn of the allegations involving Greg and are concerned for all parties as we continue to investigate," the Panthers said in a statement.
Upon arrival they spoke to the woman, who told them she had been physically assaulted and threatened by Hardy.
Hardy, who also goes by his alter persona "The Kraken,'' led the Panthers in sacks this past season with 15.
Carolina general manager Dave Gettleman has said repeatedly he hopes to sign the 2010 sixth-round pick to a long-term contract.
