Redskins’ Fred Davis arrested, charged with DWI
Fairfax County police said Davis was arrested in Tysons Corner at 3:45 p.m. at the intersection of Gallows Road and Leesburg Pike but declined to offer additional details, citing evidentiary reasons.
Davis, 28, was suspended indefinitely by the league on Wednesday for a violation of the league’s policy on substances of abuse. His contract is set to expire March 11, when the new league year begins, and he will be an unrestricted free agent.
“Disappointed for Fred,” Redskins general manager Bruce Allensaid Friday morning. “We really can’t comment on the suspension, because that’s a league matter with Fred, but we heard, like everybody, about what happened yesterday, and that’s disappointing.”
Davis had seven receptions for 70 yards and a touchdown in 10 games in 2013, his sixth season with the Redskins. He was suspended for the final four games of the 2011 season and played in only seven games in 2012 after tearing his left Achilles’ tendon.
“Unfortunately, we’re not able to talk to Fred because of the suspension, but he’s a resilient guy,” Allen said. “He had to overcome a hurdle a few years ago, and he did it, and he got injured, and he worked hard to come back. It’s up to Fred what his future holds.”
