Washington running back Derrius Guice was arrested on domestic violence-related charges in Virginia on Friday, The Washington Post reports.

Guice faces one count of strangulation, a felony, as well as three counts of assault and battery and one count of destruction of property, a spokesman for the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office told the newspaper.

Guice, who has hired prominent criminal attorney Peter D. Greenspun, surrendered to authorities Friday.

His arrest gives new coach Ron Rivera yet another headache to deal with.

The NFL could place Guice on the Commissioner Exempt list, but Washington could decide to move on since Guice has done little in two seasons.

Washington selected Guice in the second round in 2018, and knee injuries have limited the former LSU product to five games, one start, 49 touches, 324 yards and three touchdowns.

The team has depth at the position anyway, with Adrian Peterson, Peyton Barber, J.D. McKissic, Antonio Gibson and Bryce Love.

  1. Between spending a majority of his contract to buy his mom a car and now lawyer fees, this guy will have nothing left. We all know what that means, Blame Trump and cry racism. When all else fails, that is the rally cry.

    Did you hurt yourself when you made this giant leap? Seriously, this had nothing to do with politics at all. Are you also one of those guys always saying “dont bring politics into sports!”

    I was reading a story earlier today on Yahoo about the upcoming meteor shower (Tuesday and Wednesday nights for stargazers) and the first comment in the comment section was some kook who immediately found a way to tie the story to the “dumbocrats” and the “crooked left”. This reminds me of that. Same guy can be found in nearly any comment section on the net. It’s quite disturbing.

  4. It’s really the systemic racism that caused this. He didn’t have enough access to the better schools, and wasn’t taught right from wrong. Basically it’s everyone else’s fault and not his

  5. This is the same fool that said defenders should know his injury history and never contact his legs when tackling him. He claimed the Packers Darnell Savage is a dirty player for tackling him.

    Not surprising that this genius assaults women.

    Seriously? I hope this is sarcasm. This is just the type of ideology that destroying the fabric of society. People know what’s right and wrong. Life is all about choices, he made a bad choices. Men who act out violently against women usually have more than one incident. Too bad he wasn’t in our neighborhood growing up. He would have been dealt with promptly and expeditiously. Another words he would have been taught…..he be woke….lol.

    I’m tired of reading excuses for violence because they didnt go to the best schools or did have a dad around. Very dear friend grew up in a trailer park, no father around and only his mother to raise him and his brother. He is now a prominent lawyer with in our community and nation wide. No excuses no BS man.

  8. The cards just aligned for Adrian Peterson to keep chipping away at that all time record for rushing yards
