Just days after he tied the record for the longest field goal in NFL history, Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski is in trouble with the law, stemming from an incident last year.

The Contra Costa Times reports that Janikowski has been charged with misdemeanor battery and false imprisonment against a woman stemming from a 2010 incident.

According to the report, the woman says Janikowski used force and violence upon her, but there are no more details than that. Janikowski and the Raiders were unavailable for comment.

Janikowski has had multiple legal problems but none in the last few years. He was arrested four times while a player at Florida State and has been arrested three times since the Raiders drafted him in 2000. His most recent arrest was in 2003 and related to a fight at a restaurant. Those charges were later dropped.
