Junior Galette arrested

Plenty of wacky crap goes down during spring break. You just don’t expect an NFL player to be part of the shenanigans, but that’s what happened with Washington Redskins linebacker Junior Galette.

Galette was arrested Friday night during a music festival and charged with disorderly conduct and failure to comply, according to Doug Walker of WLOX. Galette allegedly got into a fight at MGM Park in Biloxi, Mississippi, where the concert was held, and then ran away.

The Redskins released a statement that they are aware of the incident but did not comment further.

Galette was among 52 people arrested at the Biloxi Black Beach Weekend festival, and he is still facing a civil trial for a domestic violence case from 2015.

Since signing with the Redskins in July 2015, Galette has not played a down. He missed the entire 2015 season with a torn left Achilles tendon, and the entire 2016 season with a torn right Achilles tendon.
