Redskins safety Nicholson arrested on assault charge

Washington Redskins safety Montae Nicholson was arrested on assault and battery and drunk in public charges following a Tuesday morning incident in Ashburn, Virginia.

According to an incident report from the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, Nicholson and a female suspect allegedly physically assaulted a male and female following an altercation that "occurred after the suspects pulled up in a vehicle and honked the horn at [the victims]."

Nicholson and the female suspect were later arrested and held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center. Nicholson was released on $2,500 bond later Tuesday morning, according to police.

"We are aware of the arrest of Montae Nicholson. We are gathering more information and will not comment until we have further details," the Redskins said in a statement.

The Redskins selected Nicholson in the fourth round of the 2017 draft and he has started seven games this season for Washington.
