UPDATE: Statement from the Redskins:
#Redskins Senior VP of Communications Tony Wyllie:— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) December 18, 2018
“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 will be dealing with a player being arrested as they wind down their 2018 season. Montae Nicholson was arrested after he and his girlfriend got into an altercation with another couple around 2 a.m.
Safety Montae M. Nicholson, 23, of Ashburn, was charged with assault and battery and drunk in public following the incident. Another suspect, Sydney A. Maggiore, 24, of Vienna, was reportedly with Nicholson at the scene. She has been charged with malicious wounding and assault and battery.
Last night was “Service Industry Night” at World of Beer from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., which turns the bar into more of a club environment, including a DJ. A bartender who was working there last night said Redskins players frequently visit the bar on Mondays https://t.co/bReBFvyYyy— Dan Steinberg (@dcsportsbog) December 19, 2018

The reported victims, an adult male and adult female, were located at the scene. They were allegedly assaulted by Nicholson and Maggiore, according to authorities. An investigation determined Nicholson assaulted the male victim, while Maggiore assaulted both the male and female victims. Maggiore is believed to have struck the female victim with a bottle.
One of the victims said the altercation started after either Nicholson and Maggiore honked a horn at them. A verbal confrontation ensued and escalated to a physical altercation.
We will update this story as more information becomes available.
I heard part of the decision to go get Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was some at Redskins Park were worried about trusting Montae Nicholson. Much of that was health related. I never expected this though.— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) December 18, 2018
