Washington Redskins Safety Allegedly Caught on Video in Drunken Brawl (WATCH)


Video published Wednesday purportedly shows Washington Redskins safety Montae Nicholson, 23, in a brutal, drunken brawl. He is the man in a red hoodie, attacking another guy in a jean jacket, according to TMZ Sports.

Some people apparently attempted to put a stop to the fight. There was a lot of stumbling. The video comes to an end when the man in the red hoodie lands a left cross on the other man’s face. The victim falls down and appears to go limp. The man in the red hoodie gets on top and continues striking him, though this final portion of the video is blocked off by a car door.

The incident happened in Loudon County, Virginia early Tuesday morning. Deputies arrested Nicholson and 24-year-old Syndey Maggiore over the incident.

The sheriff’s office said Maggiore attacked a second woman at the scene with a beer bottle, and also attacked the male victim. The victims sustained non-life-threatening injuries, and were taken to a hospital.

Nicholson was charged with assault and battery, and drunk in public. Maggiore faces malicious wounding, and assault and battery.

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said Wednesday that Nicholson’s future remained undecided.
