Redskins’ Junior Galette arrested over the weekend in Mississippi


Junior Galette was arrested Friday night in Biloxi, Miss. The Washington Redskins linebacker is accused of disorderly conduct and failure to comply with police orders following a fight at MGM Park minor league baseball stadium, according to WLOX.

Galette’s attorney, Ralph Whalen, confirmed Monday night to The Advocate, his client was arrested but otherwise could not comment on the specifics of the case. Whalen noted Galette was bailed out shortly afterwards.

Galette signed a one-year deal with the Redskins this offseason, returning for a third season. However, he has yet to play a game with the team as he tore each of his Achilles tendons in back-to-back years prior to the season.

This is not Galette’s first time dealing with legal issues. In 2015 while a member of the New Orleans Saints, Galette was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence. No charges were filed, but he still faces a civil lawsuit filed by his accuser. A trial is set for June 12 in Gretna, La.

Also in 2015 a video stemming from a 2013 incident that saw Galette striking a woman with a belt during a brawl on Miami Beach. The Saints released him shortly following the release of the video.
