APPLETON, Wis. (AP) -- An Appleton nightclub owner says a woman threw a drink at Nick Barnett before the Packers linebacker was arrested for allegedly shoving someone at the bar last weekend.

Kathy Peotter co-owns Wet nightclub.

She says the altercation with Barnett involved two women asking him and other Packer players for autographs.

She says at some point, a woman threw a drink at Barnett shortly before a woman was shoved or fell to the floor.

It wasn't clear whether the same woman was involved.

Barnett was arrested for misdemeanor battery and posted bond a short time later.

Appleton police say witnesses are still being interviewed.

Investigators hope to send their reports to the district attorney early next week.
