McKnight, 39, who scored eight touchdowns as wide receiver for the Fins from 2001 to 2003, was charged with misdemeanor battery.
Knight, a deep threat on the field known for his circus catches, was nabbed by Broward County Sheriff‘s deputies at his office in Miramar. McKnight now works as a financial advisor for the Principal Financial Group.
According to arrest documents exclusively obtained by Gossip Extra, McKnight allegedly grabbed his wife Mikki’s wrists and twisted them when he threw her into their car. The incident occurred Oct. 14 in the garage of their $1.7 million-mansion at the Landmark Ranch neighborhood.
As she landed, Mikki, 36, allegedly hit her head on the car door and told deputies she “saw stars.” She told police she also injured her lower back.
The McKnights have four children together and are involved in Pro Athletes Outreach, a Christian ministry for retired NFL players that includes former Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Trent Dilfer, now an ESPN analyst.
Mikki hung up the phone this am when asked about the incident.
“Do NOT call me again,” she said. “That’s my comment.”
