Eagles’ Jalen Mills arrested after fight with NBA player
Eagles cornerback Jalen Mills and Wizards forward Devin Robinson were involved in an altercation, resulting in both players from different leagues being arrested.
According to a police report obtained by NBC Philadelphia, the two players were outside a Washington, D.C. nightclub when an argument turned into a physical fight just before 3 a.m. ET. It’s not clear what sparked the incident.
Both players were arrested for disorderly affray, a charge for public fighting. Mills paid a “small fee” and was released, but he will have a court date unless the charges are dropped. Robinson, however, was injured in the fight and taken to Sibley Hospital for treatment.
The Wizards took action quickly, releasing a statement Saturday that said Robinson will not be back with the team next season.
“We are aware of the incident this morning involving Devin and are disappointed in his actions. We will not extend a qualifying offer to him for the 2019-20 season,” the team’s statement said.
The Eagles also issued a statement Saturday morning as they acknowledged the altercation, but the team did not reveal any other details.
