    Yet another incident of domestic violence!

    Starks arrested, misses exhibition game wire reports

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Aug. 13, 2006) -- Tennessee defensive tackle Randy Starks missed the Titans' exhibition opener after turning himself in following a charge that he assaulted his fiancee.

    Starks had been slated to start against New Orleans, but Titans coach Jeff Fisher said after the 19-16 loss that he had dismissed the two-year veteran from the game.

    "I told Randy there was no place for him here as far as being a part of the team tonight. What follows is a legal issue. Anything is between him and the club. I just felt it was best he did not participate with his teammates," Fisher said.

    Don Aaron, a spokesman for Metro Nashville Police, didn't immediately answer messages left by The Associated Press.

    WTVF-TV in Nashville reported that Starks turned himself into police about 90 minutes before kickoff after being charged with beating his 25-year-old fiancee at their home earlier in the day. The station cited a police report that said the woman lost some fingernails in the scuffle and had her head banged against a wall.

    Starks was released after posting a $2,000 bond. He turns 23 in December and is the youngest of the returning Titans. He has played in 32 games, including 24 starts.
