Redskins LB Junior Galette Ran From Police, Then Got Tased Following Another Beach Fight
Washington Redskins linebacker Junior Galette attended Black Beach Weekend in Biloxi, Mississippi over the weekend. On Friday night, the 29-year old was involved in a fight, where a police officer reportedly saw him punch a man. The cop approached the situation, when all of a sudden Galette ran. The officer caught Galette, hit him with a Taser and arrested him for disorderly conduct and failure to comply. At that point, he became “very cooperative” according to TMZ.
Police did not charge Galette with assault because they didn’t think the victim would cooperate. It sounds like it wasGalette’s lucky day, which seems to be the case in his past arrests.
Case and point: In 2013 Galette was captured hitting a woman with a belt during a beach melee, but was never charged.
Also, in 2015, he was not charged in a domestic incident. Galette was suspended 2 games for that incident but hasn’t played since 2014 because of two consecutive season-ending Achilles injuries in 2015 and 2016. He signed another 1-year deal with Washington in January.
We have reached out to Galette’s agent for further comment, but have not gotten a response. We will be sure to update you when/if we do.
