Arizona Cardinals running backs coach James Saxon is facing domestic battery charges in Indiana stemming from an incident there earlier this summer, according to court records obtained by USA TODAY Sports on Friday.
Saxon, 56, was visiting a woman in the Indianapolis area on May 7 when they got into an argument at a Costco that escalated upon returning to her home, according to the probable cause affidavit filed in the case. The woman told police that in the course of the argument, which took place with two young children present, Saxon pushed her with his forearm, causing her to fall backwards into a garage door.
Brand in Saxon Switzerland: Warning of false reports
The district office in Pirna has warned of false reports in connection with the forest fire in the back of Saxon Switzerland. Specifically, it is about claims that residential buildings have to be evacuated. No evacuation is still required, the authority said on Wednesday afternoon. The situation in the fire areas remains tense, but is not out of control. The population was asked not to spread false reports.
Saxon is facing two charges of domestic battery in connection with the incident: One misdemeanor and one Level 6 felony, which is the lowest level in. Indiana law calls for a felony charge in cases where the offense occurs within the presence of a child under the age of 16.
Saxon's attorney, Carman L. Malone, said she will vigorously defend her client but declined to otherwise comment, citing the pending nature of the case.
"We were made aware of this incident in May," the Cardinals said in a statement. "At that time, we also alerted the NFL as required and it is currently under review pursuant to League policies.”
ESPN,, noted that Saxon has continued to coach for the team at training camp, which opened late last month.

(AP) — The drama is over and the decision is in: Kyler Murray and the Arizona Cardinals have made a long-term commitment to each other with a new contract that would keep the quarterback in the desert through the 2028 season. The two-time Pro Bowl selection was taken with the No. 1 overall pick out of Oklahoma after he won the Heisman Trophy and has largely delivered in his quest to make the Cardinals a better franchise.

The court has issued a no-contact order that bars Saxon from having any communication with the woman, who is not named in the affidavit. USA TODAY Sports does not identify victims of domestic violence without their permission.
The next hearing in the case is scheduled for Aug. 25, according to court records.
A retired fullback who played parts of eight seasons in the NFL, Saxon has since spent more than two decades as a position coach. Before joining the Cardinals in 2019, he also worked as running backs coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Minnesota Vikings, Miami Dolphins, Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills.

Cardinals say QB Kyler Murray focused on football .
LITCHFIELD PARK, Ariz. (AP) — Kyler Murray has made it no secret he enjoys video games, including the popular “Call of Duty” franchise. Tight end Zach Ertz said the franchise quarterback also knows he has a duty to study his playbook. Ertz believes Murray's love of video games and football can be balanced, no matter what unique addendums are in Murray's new $230.5 million contract that could keep him in the desert through the 2028 season. “Kyler knows the playbook better than anyone on this team,” Ertz said Tuesday, when the Cardinals reported for preseason camp. “He's been in the system a long period of time. Ultimately, I'm happy he signed a deal that he's happy about.
