Former NFL quarterback Erik Kramer faces a domestic violence charge following his arrest last week. According to news reports, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Kramer following a violent confrontation with his wife.
Kramer’s wife claims that he threw numerous household objects at her during a verbal argument. He now faces a felony charge of corporal injury to a spouse. He was released on a $50,000 bond and also received a restraining order prohibiting contact with his wife and daughter.
Kramer played professionally with the Atlanta Falcons, the Detroit Lions, the Chicago Bears and the San Diego Chargers. He also played for the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League. He retired from professional football midway through the 1999 season due to injuries. Kramer is a native of Encino, and played at Pierce College before transferring to NC State. He went undrafted, but the Atlanta Falcons signed him as a replacement player during the 1987 NFL players’ strike.
