Redskins TE Fred Davis Accused of Assaulting a Woman

The off-season for 20 NFL teams began this week, and already one player has caught the attention of law enforcement.

According to, Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis is a suspect in an assault earlier this morning at a D.C.-area nightclub.

The police report states that Davis approached a woman at the club in an "aggressive manner". Davis allegedly grabbed her, prompting the woman to throw her drink in his face. A short time later, Davis is alleged to have thrown his drink at her and then striking her in the lip with an object, believed to be a champagne bottle.

No charges have been filed, and the club in question is equipped with surveillance equipment.

A second-round pick out of USC in 2008, Davis caught 21 passes for 316 yards and 3 touchdowns in 16 games for the Redskins last season. In 43 career games, Davis has 72 receptions for 852 yards and 9 scores.

Davis made headlines last summer after pleading guilty to a pair of misdemeanors, driving with a suspended or revoked license and giving false information to a police officer, and for having seven moving violations in Loudon County, Virginia.
