Cardinals LB Daryl Washington accused of assault
Earlier this off-season, Arizona Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington was suspended four games for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. Washington’s off-season is only getting worse as today it is being reported that Phoenix police are investigating Washington for assault.
According to the report, a woman called the police Wednesday afternoon claiming she was assaulted by Washington.
Washington released a statement about the alleged incident.
“These are serious accusations that we are closely monitoring. Until all the facts are determined, and out of respect for the process, we will decline any further comment at this point.”
Last September, Washington signed a six year contract with the Cardinals. However, if Washington cannot stay out of trouble, he may not be on the team for long.
