Washington Commanders safety Deshazor Everett has been charged with involuntary manslaughter stemming from a December car crash that killed his girlfriend, Olivia Peters, who was riding in the car he was driving.

“Mr. Everett voluntarily appeared earlier today at the Loudoun County Magistrate’s Office where he was served with a warrant for involuntary manslaughter,” Everett’s attorney said in a statement. “Shortly thereafter, he was released on bond. Our team continues to investigate this matter as we intend on vigorously defending Mr. Everett against these allegations. We continue to ask that judgment be reserved until all facts are fully investigated and litigated in the proper forum. At this time we cannot comment any further due to the pending litigation.”

Everett was injured and Peters died after the vehicle Everett was driving hit several trees and rolled over.

The 29-year-old Everett was Washington’s special teams captain last season.

  1. That’s sad. Don’t know the details but if it was reckless driving then even sadder. I’m not victim blaming at all here, but in general I think we as people need to hold our friends and peers accountable when it comes to driving safely, and vice versa.

    I’ve seen way too much negligence by friend groups in my college days, people on the highway (sometimes woth passengerd), and by people at bars, even though all it takes is one small error/random variable and that negligence can be fatal. Please be safe people
