An Indianapolis Colts linebacker and his girlfriend were recovering Friday after the mother of two of his children allegedly attacked them.

ABC-affiliate WSB-TV 2 in Atlanta reported Thursday that Colts linebacker Erik Walden and his girlfriend were allegedly attacked in his Georgia home by Erika Palmer, who is the mother of two of Walden's children.

Police told WSB-TV reporter Jovita Moore that Palmer apparently drove from Tennessee to Georgia to confront the couple, stopping along the way to buy a knife and a bat.

"There was a knife involved and there was a gun at first when we got there," Braselton Assistant Police Chief Lou Solis told WSB-TV.

Walden was cut during the exchange and his girlfriend's arm was broken, WSB-TV reported.

Palmer was reportedly charged with 13 offenses, although Walden told police he didn't want to press charges.

This was not the first time Walden was involved in a domestic dispute with his ex-girlfriend. In 2011 when the couple was living in Wisconsin, Walden was arrested for allegedly hitting Palmer. Police said once Palmer found out he was going to be arrested, she changed her story and claimed she provoked him.

Walden ended up doing community service and agreed to go to counseling.

Walden has played for the Colts since 2013. Prior to that, he was with the Green Bay Packers.
