LAYTON – Former BYU tight end Gordon Hudson was arrested and booked into the Davis County Jail Thursday morning, on suspicion of domestic violence and assault.
Hudson was a two-time consensus All-American at BYU, and played in the USFL and NFL.
Hudson was booked on suspicion of domestic violence in the presence of a child, assault (domestic violence) and criminal mischief (domestic violence) on $3,740 bail.
Hudson appeared with a bloody wound between his eyes in the booking photo.
Gordon Hudson played at BYU from 1980-83 and was a teammate of NFL Hall of Famer Steve Young.
Court records show Hudson was charged with assault, domestic violence in the presence of a child and intoxication, stemming from an incident in 2010, also out of Layton. He pleaded guilty to intoxication and the other charges were dropped. He was sentenced to community service and a fine.
Layton Police Lt. Shawn Horton told the Clipper that officers received a call from Hudson’s residence just after 11:00 p.m. Wednesday on a report of a domestic disturbance.
Horton said when officers arrived they interviewed Hudson’s wife and adult stepson, who told them that there had been an argument.
Horton said the stepson claimed to have intervened in the altercation to protect his mother and that Hudson had left the residence.
A short time later, Horton said Hudson returned to the home and officers were once again dispatched to the scene. Horton said the suspect had allegedly kicked in a door and assaulted his stepson in the presence two teen girls who are also Hudson’s stepchildren.
