The offseason is upon us for 20 NFL teams, but so far no player has been arrested.
That could be changing.
TMZ reports that Redskins tight end Fred Davis is under investigation for assault. He reportedly got into an altercation with a woman at a night club. Davis allegedly approached the woman in an “aggressive” manner and grabbed her. The woman responded by throwing a drink in his face.
Then, Davis allegedly threw a drink back at her, and he allegedly struck her with an object in the lip, cutting it.
Surveillance video, per TMZ, paints a somewhat different picture. A law enforcement official said that Davis appeared to be reaching for the woman calmly when she responded by throwing the drink at him. He then poured the contents of a plastic bottle on her head and threw the bottle at her. Then, bystanders got involved in the process, which resulted in the woman apparently taking an elbow to the lip from someone other than Davis.
A second-round pick in 2008, Davis has appeared in 43 career games, with 21 starts. He has 72 career receptions for 952 yards and nine touchdowns.
