And if a Woman Did This

Do you REALLY THINK she would be charged AT ALL, WITH ANYTHING, much less a FELONY!?!?!?  And don't give me that crap that women somehow CANNOT do such a thing. If a man tries to leave a home and a woman says no and he forcibly moves past her, HE CAN LITERALLY BE CHARGED WITH ASSAULT.
This man AND HIS GIRLFRIEND clearly have emotional problems that must be resolved. 
I cannot help but point out the definition of "assault" here. This man is a NFL-class LINEBACKER, meaning he's a very strong man. His girlfriend says she was assaulted "several times." What does that mean? Was she punched? Shoved? What was she treated at the hospital for? As far as we know, it could be shock or emotional trauma. To wit:

"The women told police that Hill blocked the doorway and took her cell phone."

When did he physically hurt her? If he did, that CRITICAL FACT is not mentioned! Why? Because he never hurt her, that's why.

The point is, the article implies this man held her as a prisoner and beat her, severely, as if he caused bruises and broken bones, when in fact, I'll bet he barely laid a hand on her and simply prevented her from leaving by gently restraining her - no, that's not ok. I don't see it as a FELONY, up there with rape, murder, and ARSON. But it doesn't seem as though this testosterone-addled man actually really HURT anyone. And for not hurting anyone he's been charged with MULTIPLE FELONIES? If a girl takes my cell phone and prevents me from leaving would she be charged with MULTIPLE FELONIES?

Nope. Welcome to America: land of the double standard.
By the way, when he's ordered to stay away from his girlfriend and seek counseling, what is she ordered to do?!?!? NOTHING. And when SHE goes back TO HIM after altercations, whose fault is that?
His, of course. Women are forced to take responsibility for nothing.

ISSAQUAH, Wash. -- Seattle Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill was arrested after police say he assaulted his girlfriend and kept her in his home against her will.
According to a release from the Issaquah Police Department on Wednesday morning, Hill was arrested on investigation of unlawful imprisonment-domestic violence and third-degree assault-domestic violence. Issaquah police said Hill would be booked into the King County Jail, although records Wednesday morning indicated he had yet to be booked.
Both charges are felonies in Washington state. It's at least the fourth time Hill, 30, has been arrested and the second time he's been accused of domestic violence.
Police said they responded to Hill's home around 4 p.m. Tuesday. A 26-year-old said she had been assaulted several times and was kept in Hill's home against her will. The women told police that Hill blocked the doorway and took her cell phone. She was able to escape the home when Hill used the bathroom, police said.
She was treated at a hospital and released. A Seahawks spokesman said the team is aware of the situation.
Hill played last season on a one-year contract with the Seahawks. He played in 13 games, starting 12, and recorded 47 tackles and 1½ sacks. Hill is one of two players still on the Seahawks roster from their lone Super Bowl appearance when they lost to Pittsburgh. He's played all eight NFL seasons with the Seahawks and has started 89 of 97 games in his Seattle career.
Hill is scheduled to become a free agent this offseason.
For much of his career, off-field problems have followed Hill. He was arrested less than a year ago for marijuana possession in Atlanta, but the charge was later dismissed. His first arrest came in 2009 in Georgia for marijuana possession where he was sentenced to 12 months of probation.
Then in April 2010, Hill was arrested by Issaquah police on a fourth-degree assault-domestic violence charge. Hill avoided trial on that charge after agreeing to a stipulated order of continuance that required him to avoid legal troubles for 18 months and complete a one-year, state-certified domestic violence treatment program.
Hill was suspended by the NFL for two games during the 2010 season.
