Former Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mark Duper has been arrested and accused of child abuse, according to a CBSsports.com report.

Citing an incident report, investigators claim Duper choked, punched and body slammed a teenager, knocking him unconscious and later threatened to kill the child.

According to the police report, Duper, 54, was playing video games with a friend's kids in a Jacksonville, Fla. home, when the alleged victim tossed his hat to the ground and refused to pick it up.

Duper then punched the youth and slammed him to the floor, rendering him unconsciousness. The fight moved outside the house, where the boy's father separated the two.

When the boy was leaving, he hit Duper's car with his bike, causing Duper to choke and threaten to kill the victim, the police report said.
