(Photo by Mark Goldman/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images) SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- Former Super Bowl MVP Mark Rypien recently acknowledged to a Washington state police officer that he struck his wife during a domestic dispute, but his attorney later contended it was in self-defense.

A report by Spokane Officer Todd Brownlee said Rypien acknowledged hitting his wife, Danielle, on June 30. The former Washington Redskins quarterback told police that his wife covered his eyes as he drove and she got the "wind knocked out of her" after he pushed her hands away, The Spokesman-Review reported Thursday.

A report by Spokane Officer Todd Brownlee said Rypien acknowledged hitting his wife , Danielle, on June 30. Rypien was arrested yesterday for alleged fourth degree domestic violence against his wife , and is slated for release today without a no contact order.

Later, when Danielle Rypien laid in the grass clutching her stomach and struggling to breath, Mark Rypien reportedly told his wife to "tell the truth."

"Did you hit her?" Brownlee asked Mark Rypien, according to the police report.

"Yes, I did," he replied.

Rypien announced last year that he believes he suffered brain damage from his time in the NFL that caused him to behave violently at times.

Rypien's attorney, Chris Bugbee, stood by his client's statements in an email Thursday, saying that while Rypien struck his wife, it was in self-defense.

"He shoved Danielle back into the passenger seat with his right arm and elbow hard enough to ensure that he would move her out of the way," Bugbee wrote. "So when the officer informed Mark that a witness had seen a man strike Danielle in the car, he told the officer that he was the person. There is no doubt that he struck her when he moved her."
