Washington linebacker Junior Galette was tased and arrested by police in Biloxi, Miss., on Friday.
A police officer said he saw the football player punch another person at the Biloxi Black Beach Weekend, a spring break party, around 10:30 p.m.. Galette then ran, according to the cops, prompting the officer to use his taser on the sack artist in order to arrest him. Police said rom that point forward the linebacker was “cooperative.”
Galette was charged with disorderly conduct and failure to comply and released on a $500 bond, according to TMZ Sports.
Galette had previously been accused of domestic violence for an alleged incident in January of 2015, but those criminal charges were soon thereafter dropped.
Though Galette has been on Washington’s roster for the last two seasons, he has yet to actually play in a game for them. Achilles injuries — one to each leg — have derailed him each of the last two seasons. He re-signed with Washington on a one-year deal this offseason.
Galette played for the Saints from 2010-2014. He recorded double-digit sacks in his last two seasons in New Orleans.
