Court records show that Hamilton, 38, a Keller resident, was booked and released in Tarrant County about 3:15 p.m.

On Oct. 2, according to the affidavit, Tarrant County Child Protective Services called the Keller Police Department after receiving a report of physical abuse of Hamilton's daughter made by his ex-wife, Katie.

While yelling and using profanity, Hamilton grabbed the chair where the girl had her feet propped up and pulled it from under her. Hamilton threw the chair and while she was able to mostly dodge it, she was hit her leg, according to the affidavit. Hamilton reportedly lifted her up, threw her over his shoulder and carried her to her bedroom.

The bond conditions also stipulated the former Texas Ranger not have any contact with his three daughters, nor any child under the age of 17.
