Washington Redskins defensive back Montae Nicholson was arrested early Tuesday on charges of assault.

The former Michigan State football star was arrested following an incident at a shopping complex near the team's facility in Loudon, Va.

From the Washington Post:

The fight began close to 2 a.m. when Nicholson and a female companion pulled up in a car and honked the horn at a man and woman in the 20400 block of Exchange Street in Ashburn, the sheriff’s office said.

Nicholson, 23, and Sydney A. Maggiore, 24, got out of the car and “then it turned physical,” said spokesman Kraig Troxell.

John Keim has acquired the full police report, which includes all of the details:

The Redskins released the following statement:

“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 announced.

Nicholson was a fourth-round pick out of Michigan State in the 2017 NFL Draft.
