DAVIE ยท Dolphins wide receiver David Boston was arrested Tuesday night in Vermont on a charge of simple assault at the Burlington International Airport.

A Burlington Police Department report stated Boston was arrested for an alleged assault against Ed Gorchinski, a 59-year-old ticket/gate agent. Boston, 26, is cited to appear in court in December, according to a police report.

Further details of the arrest are being compiled by Burlington police, spokesman Wade Labrecque said early Saturday morning.

Boston, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in August, has been rehabilitating in Vermont. Boston also recently underwent a second knee surgery in Vermont stemming from an infection.

Agent Mitch Frankel didn't return a telephone message late Friday seeking comment. The Dolphins are declining comment until receiving more information about the arrest.

The Dolphins acquired Boston from San Diego last March for a 2005 sixth-round draft choice in hopes he would help upgrade their wide receiver corps. But Boston, who led the NFL in receiving yards in 2001, tore his left patella tendon during a joint practice with the Houston Texans.

Boston pleaded no contest to a charge of driving under the influence of drugs in March 2002 while playing for Arizona. Signed by San Diego in the 2003 offseason, Boston was suspended for one game last year for conduct detrimental to the team.

Boston had no legal or disciplinary problems since being acquired by the Dolphins.
