When reports first emerged that Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington faces allegations of domestic violence, the accounts indicated that the victim had marks on her neck suggesting that she had been choked.
According to CBS5 in Phoenix, the victim also has a broken collarbone.
Per the report, paperwork filed in court indicate that Washington and the woman, the mother of his five-month-old daughter, got into a fight near the woman’s apartment, where Washington allegedly choked her. Then, they got into another fight in the parking lot, where Washington allegedly threw her to the ground and broke her collarbone.
Phoenix police Sgt. Steve Martos said that the couple had past altercations that were not reported to police. This time, the victim allegedly threw a plastic plant at Washington, but it didn’t hit him. She possibly will face charges.
For now, Washington is out of jail after posting a $4,200 bond. But the broken collarbone makes the situation significantly more ominous for Washington, who already will miss the first four games of the 2013 season due to a suspension under the substance-abuse policy.
