Former NFL player Ufomba Kamalu was arrested for domestic violence then released by the Baltimore Ravens

Pikesville, MD – Baltimore Ravens defensive end Ufomba Kamalu was arrested on domestic violence charges on April 9.

ESPN reported that police responded to a domestic violence call at 10 a.m. April 8.

Police said what started as an argument between Kamalu and a woman turned into a physical altercation. The woman had a visible injury, police said.

Kamalu, who is listed at 6-foot-6 and 295 pounds, was gone when police arrived but the officers obtained a warrant for his arrest.

The Ravens released Kamalu later that day. The Ravens had signed Kamalu to a contract on Jan. 13. The contract was a “futures contract” which means it is usually minimum salary with no guaranteed money.

Kamalu has played four seasons in the NFL and has made $1.18 million.

He was arrested on April 9 on charges of second-degree assault and was released on a $20,000 bond.

Kamalu, 27, was on the Ravens’ 53-man roster for two weeks during the 2019 season but wasn’t active.

He played in 2016 and 2017 with the Houston Texans and appeared in 13 games those two years. He played in two games with the New England Patriots in 2018.

Kamalu played three years of college football at the University of Miami. He played in 48 games during his college career and finished with eight sacks.

The Baltimore Ravens have taken a hard line on domestic violence ever since the Ray Rice incident. Rice was a starting running back for the Ravens when he was suspended indefinitely by the NFL in 2014, according to ESPN.

The NFL has originally suspended Rice for two games for domestic violence. However, a video surfaced that showed Rice knocking out his then fiancé in an elevator. ESPN reported that Rice’s league suspension was overturned by an arbitrator but no NFL teams signed him.

Well a judge did sign the warrant. But at 6'6" 295 lbs I guess he has a right to defend himself against domestic abuse from his significant other /sarc/

the woman had a visible injury? judge signed off on the warrant? this is more than a simple he said she said. glad to see the ravens are taken a hard line to domestic violence. however, if he is acquitted of all charges, he should be able to resume his NFL career with no issues.

Overpaid, entitled members of the National Felon League just can't help themselves, apparently. 😣👎

Domestic violence has gone up by something like 75% since the stay home orders. Child abuse reports have gone down drastically since children don't have teachers and daycare workers to whom they can report abuse. A sad deal for kids.
