Packers LB Erik Walden charged with disorderly conduct

Green Bay Packers linebacker Erik Walden was charged Wednesday morning with misdemeanor disorderly conduct, not the felony substantial battery for which he was arrested in November, according to Paul Srubas of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

The charge, which carries a maximum penalty of 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine, is based on a Nov. 25 dispute between the 26-year-old Walden and his live-in girlfriend in their town of Lawrence apartment.

Walden did not appear in Brown County Circuit Court this morning, but his lawyer, Steve Richards, entered a plea of not guilty on Walden’s behalf. Court Commissioner Lawrence Gazeley scheduled the matter for a Dec. 27 hearing.
Walden remains free on a $1,000 signature bond.
