According to WLOX’s Doug Walker, ex-New Orleans Saints and current Washington Redskins defensive end Junior Galette was arrested over the weekend in Biloxi, MS for getting into a fight and running away at MGM Park. Per the report, Galette was charged with disorderly conduct and failure to comply.

The Advocate’s Nick Underhill and Ramon Antonio Vargas caught up with Galette’s attorney, who confirmed the arrest. However, his attorney would not disclose anything further on the case, but managed to say Galette was bailed out quickly.

Galette had a long history of off-field incidents, which ultimately led to him being in Sean Payton’s dog house and being released by the Saints. In the process, it cost the team over $12 million in dead money. In just a short six-month timeframe, he certainly had a lot happen.

Galette hasn’t played a down since the end of the 2014, suffering Achilles’ injuries in both of the past seasons. He returned to the Redskins on a pay cut this season for a base salary of $800K. Having just turned 29 coupled with another incident, it’s getting harder to picture Galette getting back on the field to be the player he once was.
