Digest: Redskins' Junior Galette tased during arrest in Miss., released on $500 bond

Washington Redskins outside linebacker Junior Galette was chased, tased and arrested Friday night in Biloxi, Miss., according to Biloxi police Sgt. Jackie Rhodes. Galette was charged with two simple misdemeanors — disorderly conduct and disobeying lawful order — according to Rhodes, and released after posting a $500 bond. The arrest occurred during Biloxi Black Beach Weekend, a spring break event that drew an estimated 60,000 people. A Biloxi police officer was flagged down about a possible fight in East Biloxi around 10:30 p.m. on Friday night, Rhodes said. The officer allegedly observed Galette assault another man, according to the police report, and Galette ran off when he was approached by the officer. After a brief chase, Galette was tased and arrested for simple assault, but that charge was not filed. "In the big scheme of things for the weekend, it was a minor incident," Rhodes said Tuesday morning. It is Galette's only known arrest as a member of the Redskins. He was previously arrested in 2015 for domestic abuse as a member of the New Orleans Saints, but the charges were later dropped. "We are aware of the incident. We are gathering information and will refrain from making any further comment," the Redskins said in a statement.
