WRENTHAM, Mass. – New England Patriots wide receiver Terry Glenn was arrested on an assault and battery charge after an argument with the mother of his 5-year-old son.

The dispute at Glenn’s home Tuesday night happened while he was trying to reconcile with the woman, his agent, James Gould, said.

”It’s a very personal matter between he and the mother of his child,” Gould said. ”It was just a domestic squabble. The details of it are going to stay private.”

Gould said no one was hit and the child was not involved.

”They’ve been trying to find a pathway to raise their child together,” he said. ”It didn’t work.”

Glenn was to be arraigned Wednesday in Wrentham District Court. He was released Tuesday night on $1,000 bail, said David Traub, a spokesman for the Norfolk County district attorney’s office. Traub declined to provide details of the case.

Glenn has been with the Patriots since 1996, when he set an NFL record for receptions by a rookie. He recently signed a contract extension with New England through the 2007 season.
