Moore released following arrest

ATLANTA — Atlanta Falcons safety William Moore has been released from jail on $2,500 bond following his arrest on a misdemeanor simple battery charge.

Moore, a Pro Bowl alternate in 2012 and a former Missouri Tiger, was granted the bond during his first appearance before a Fulton County magistrate judge Friday morning. Fulton County sheriff’s spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan said Sunday that Moore was released late Friday.

Atlanta police spokesman Carlos Campos said Moore was arrested Thursday after officers were called to a Northwest Atlanta address and advised that Moore and a woman were involved in an argument. Campos says during the argument Moore “threw the victim’s phone and grabbed the victim’s shoulder.”

The Falcons released a statement Thursday night saying the team was gathering more information.
