Reports: Junior Galette arrested in Mississippi

Washington Redskins linebacker Junior Galette was arrested this weekend in Biloxi, Miss. on charges of disorderly conduct and failing to comply, according to WLOX-TV.

Galette allegedly was arrested Friday night after getting into a fight at MGM Park and running away during a spring break weekend event in Biloxi.

Galette’s attorney, Ralph Whalen, confirmed the arrest to the New Orleans Advocate and that Galette had been released on bail.

Galette was arrested in January 2015 on domestic abuse allegations, which were later dropped. However, a civil case is still active against Galette in that matter. A video surfaced later that year showing Galette swinging a belt at someone on a beach as part of a fight in a separate matter.

Galette has missed the last two seasons in the NFL due to separate Achilles tendon injuries with the Washington Redskins. He re-signed with the team again this offseason despite not appearing in a single game with the team. He has not played a football game since 2014 with the New Orleans Saints.

    One of the rare times the Saints did the right thing and just ate the money to dump this clown

    At least he learned his lesson the first two times.

    Sad. He could be making millions. I’m glad NO cut this dirtbag.

    Me thinks he has a problem

  7. Duckhomie says: Apr 10, 2017 10:57 PM

    Is he really worth the money, time and effort? Why does any professional sports league allow these types of morons play? There are a hundred more out there with outstanding personal conduct and stellar talent that could take his place.

    Not surprised one bit. Hope Nula Entertainment works out for him since that’s where his focus seems to be

    That someone was a female, no less.

    Is this guy Albert Haynesworth’s cousin?

  17. wdcskins says: Apr 11, 2017 2:36 AM

    Time to move on from this guy. Not very serious, yet. Cut him loose.

    Firstly, I appreciate your journalistic professionalism in saying “Redskins”; what a breath of fresh air in here…..seriously.

    Secondly, the Redskins need to release him ASAP. They have been more than patient with his recovery and have allowed him to stay employed as he overcomes his ACL issues. Other than that, he has provided zero field-value to the club. It’s time for the Redskins to cut ties.

    You only get so many chances.

    He’s a peach.

  20. manderson4150 says: Apr 11, 2017 6:45 AM

    I guess his Achilles tendon is healed……

  21. porkchopmoon says: Apr 11, 2017 6:49 AM

    Physically talented mental midget..

  22. laserw says: Apr 11, 2017 7:37 AM

    Here’s another football player who should be a former player – this guy is disgusting – steals paychecks – is constantly hurt – and can’t act like a real man.

  23. factschecker says: Apr 11, 2017 8:58 AM

    He’s a disgusting human that is more in touch with his inner animal than his inner human being. There is no use for this guy in a civil society.

  24. laxcoach37 says: Apr 11, 2017 10:09 AM

    Now we know why they signed Zach Brown… cut this Bum.

  25. footbal1q says: Apr 11, 2017 11:52 AM

    As a Redskins fan I say who cares. I’ve never seen the dude play one snap….

  26. silvernblacksabbath says: Apr 11, 2017 12:34 PM

    Is this the dude that hit the woman with his belt at the beach fight?

  27. skippynj says: Apr 12, 2017 8:45 AM

    Which was a worse signing: Jr. 4 yrs. 41.5mil with 23mil guaranteed or Jairus Byrd 6 yrs. 56mil with 28mil guaranteed?

  28. oswizard says: Apr 12, 2017 1:39 PM

    So many comments that do not care about the facts of what happened in this instance.. Saints fans, maybe you have a legitimate reason not to like him. Redskin fans, he has been a waste of money because of health, otherwise he has been as good a person and teammate since he got to Washington as a player under his circumstances could be. I hope the best for a you man that has been through a lot since he got here. Him wanting to play with the Redskins this year at league minimum because he felt he owes them is admirable. Listen to one interview with this guy before you just decide to hate him.

  29. porkchopmoon says: Apr 12, 2017 5:07 PM

    oswizard, you must be his agent. He was the same way in NOLA. All hat and no cattle…

    He has been a waste of time and money, production wise so far. But, he has been the good things I have mentioned. Not ready to do the internet pile on the way all these on line crap talkers like to do. I want him to have a chance to prove himself this year. It doesn’t mean he won’t get hurt again or he might not be as productive as the Skins have hoped for the past 2 years. All I am saying is he has proven in interviews and at the practice facility to not be the joker most of the above seem to think he is. Just the opposite, actually.
