SEATTLE (AP) -

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner is under investigation after being accused of punching his girlfriend's father at a California home.

Pomona police Lt. Ron McDonald says officers were sent around 8 p.m. Tuesday to a home where the girlfriend - who has two children with Browner - was living.

McDonald says the woman's 59-year-old father told police that Browner and his daughter argued by telephone and the father walked over to Browner's house, about a block away.

The man said Browner met him in the driveway, they argued and the two-time Super Bowl champion punched him. He reportedly fell down and hurt his thumb but declined medical treatment.

McDonald says Browner drove away and police haven't talked to him. Detectives will review the case and decide whether to send it to prosecutors.

A message to Browner's agent seeking comment wasn't immediately returned Wednesday.
