ANDERSON, Ind. (CBS\AP) — Indiana prosecutors have charged former NFL player Corwin Brown with three felonies after a seven-hour standoff with police last week.

St. Joseph County authorities said Tuesday that Brown had been charged with domestic battery for bruising his wife during the disturbance and two counts of confinement for allegedly holding her hostage with a handgun.

Bond was set at $50,000 for Brown, who is also a former assistant coach at Notre Dame. The seven-hour standoff in Granger, Ind., ended when Brown shot himself in the torso and was taken to a hospital.

Brown was Notre Dame’s defensive coordinator from 2007 to 2009. The 41-year-old coached defensive backs with the New England Patriots last season, but was not retained.

He was drafted by the Patriots in the 4th round of the 1993 NFL Draft. Brown, a safety, played four seasons with the Patriots, two with the New York Jets and two with the Detroit Lions.
