NYDailyNews 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 from 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.
This arrest of Junior Galette cannot be a surprise, Galette has a long history of problems with the law, and this arrest may finally signal that Galette has run out of second chances in the NFL. In 2013, Galette was caught on video using a belt as a weapon against a woman during a brawl in Miami Beach, but the person he assaulted in the video never came forward or filed charges. In 2015, Galette attacked a woman during a disagreement over cab fare, but these charges were later dropped. He was suspended for two weeks due to this incident. This latest arrest, coupled with the fact that Galette has not played a snap in two seasons due to torn Achilles’ tendons, should be enough for the Redskins to release Galette but it’s the Redskins so you never know. Galette has prove that he is incapable of conducting himself like a professional, and staying out of situations like this, when coupled with a lack of production on the field this could signal his release.
