The alleged incident of domestic violence occurred early Sunday morning between Pelini and his wife. A call from Pelini’s daughter was made to Boardman Police and she said her mother was “bleeding” and had a “black eye,” according to the station. Officers who responded said the woman was “very drunk” and said she and her husband had an argument and had hit her.

Pelini was reportedly ordered to stay away from the alleged victim.
