Atlanta police say Atlanta Falcons safety William Moore was granted bond Friday morning has been arrested for simple battery.

Officers responded to a dispute call in the 600 block of Ninth Street in northwest Atlanta Thursday afternoon.

When officers arrived, they were told that Moore and a female were having an argument. Police say Moore threw the woman's phone and grabbed her shoulder.

Moore was granted a signature bond of $2,500.

Moore was selected as a second round (55th pick overall) draft choice by Atlanta in 2009.

The Falcons issued the following statement:

"We are aware of the situation involving William Moore and are in the process of gathering more information. Because this is now a legal matter, the club will have no further comment at this time."
