Arizona Cardinals running backs coach James Saxon, who was charged in May with two counts of domestic battery, has been placed on administrative leave, the team confirmed Friday.

The incident happened on May 7, and according to ESPN, Saxon and a woman got into an argument at a Costco near Indianapolis. The dispute continued at the woman’s house.

Saxon is alleged to have assaulted the woman in front of a child under the age of 16.
