The cameraman who gained national attention when he was kicked by Chicago Bulls forward Dennis Rodman was arrested and accused of threatening his girlfriend.

Eugene Amos was arrested Tuesday night and booked after his girlfriend told police he went to her house and threatened her, KSTP-TV reported.

The Minneapolis-St. Paul station also reported that the woman had filed a domestic assault report against Amos Jan. 14, a day before Rodman kicked him while he was filming a Bulls-Timberwolves game. She obtained a restraining order against him the same day.

In the request for the order, she said Amos had threatened to kill her, pulled her hair and pushed her, the Saint Paul Pioneer Press reported. Amos was arrested at the time and charged with fifth-degree misdemeanor assault in the earlier altercation, the paper reported.


Amos, who received a $200,000 out-of-court settlement from Rodman, said he did not want to talk about his arrest or his relationship.
