Sapp was scheduled to be part of the Super Bowl XLIV coverage for Sunday's game between the Colts and Saints.
The former NFL star was arrested after an alleged domestic violence incident at a Miami Beach hotel, police said. He was released from jail at about 11 a.m. Sunday on $1,500 bond.
Sapp was charged with one count of misdemeanor domestic battery. His attorney, Christopher Lyons, stated that Sapp is taking the matter seriously and will cooperate with authorities.
"He sincerely apologizes to the NFL family and fans for taking away any distraction from today's big game," Lyons said. "We ask that everyone reserve judgment on the matter until all the facts come out in a court of law."
Miami Beach police spokesman Juan Sanchez said the domestic violence allegation was reported around noon Saturday and detectives interviewed Sapp later that day.
According to an arrest affidavit, the victim had a swollen knee and bruises on her back. She was taken to Mount Sinai Medical Center following the alleged incident.
The affidavit states that Sapp questioned her about men she listed on her cell phone before throwing her down again as the argument escalated. At one point, according to the woman's account, Sapp sent her a text message that said, "You whore."
Sapp told police a different story, claiming there was no fight and the woman fell on her leg when he tried to help her get off a couch. He said that he had let the woman stay in his room, but asked her to leave a few hours later because he was expecting company.
Sapp, who retired in 2008, was recently named to the NFL's All-Decade team as a defensive lineman. He was a seven-time Pro Bowl selection and won a Super Bowl ring in 2003 as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In addition to his commentating role on NFL Network's GameDay Morning show, Sapp also serves as an analyst for Showtime's Inside the NFL. Showtime has not issued a statement thus far.
