Fred Davis the lawyer says Fred Davis the player at club before game

OK, this just keeps getting stranger and stranger.

And more and more fun.

In the fantastic case of Redskins tight end Fred Davis vs. the celebrity broker, Davis admitted in court he was at a nightclub the night before a Redskins home game.

Davis is representing himself in this exceptional lawsuit filed by Makini Chaka, who claims Davis busted her lip and dumped juice on her head, which led to a restraining order.

In a document Davis submitted, he wrote that “on or around Saturday, December 3, 2012, I attended a party hosted by Promoter Eric Taylor at Cafe Asia located at 1720 I Street, NW, Washington, D.C., 20006.”

Unless he showed up in a DeLorean, that date is five months from now, which prompted the following exchange in court, via Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post:

Chaka: What’s the date of today?

Davis: I don’t know what today is. All I know is I had court today.

Chaka: You don’t know what today’s date is? His document is not even valid.

Davis: What are you talking about? . . .

Chaka: Well, according to your statement, to bullet No. 5, it says that this event happened December 3rd, 2012.

Davis: Okay, and, what about it?

Chaka: Has December 3rd, 2012 even happened yet?

Davis: What?

Chaka: What? That’s the same thing I’m saying, Mr. Davis.

Davis: It was a misprint. Okay, December 3rd, 2011, okay, great.

On December 4, 2011, Davis played in a 1 p.m. home game against the New York Jets. Caught six passes for 99 yards. A feat made more impressive if he was in a club in the hours before, at a party which was scheduled to last from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m.

Fortunately, Davis does not employ a lawyer who would prevent him from making such a declaration in court. The way this is going, we fully expect his attorney to use the “Chewbacca Defense” in the coming days. It’s the only appropriate closing.

    Fred was last seen in a violent fist fight with his lawyer in a bathroom stall at the courthouse.

    Can’t believe this fella suits up on Sundays for my team brother. Hope this is his last season in DC.

    Some claim the saying is the man who is representing himself has a fool for a client.

    Anyone saying this has no idea about the Mystery of Iniquity.

    I have no problem w/ the partying. I have a problem with all this foolishness, though.

    I’m about done w/ Sleepy Davis. Tired of stoopid players. Have big doubts about ‘Silverback’, too.

    But it will be interesting to see what he can accomplish when someone can actually get him the ball.
