Police arrested Compton on felony and misdemeanor charges, WPLG reported. Police said Compton was charged with committing domestic violence against his wife at their southwest Miami-Dade home over the weekend.

Police said Compton and his wife were arguing Saturday at their house when Compton’s wife took out a cell phone and began recording the argument, Gold Digest reported.

Compton allegedly took the phone and threw it in a pool, then grabbed his wife by the shoulder and tossed her into a wall. Compton’s wife left the residence and went to a friend’s home, where she called authorities.

Police said the incident happened just after 9:30 Saturday evening at the couple’s home in the Glenvar Heights area south of Miami.

Compton was taken to Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami and later bonded out, according to Golf Week.

Compton was diagnosed with viral cardiomyopathy as a child and has undergone two heart transplants, one in 1992 when he was just 12 years old and another in 2008, according to Golf Week.
