Latimer was arrested for his role in the incident and was booked on multiple charges, including assault in the second degree, menacing, illegal discharge of a firearm, prohibited use of a weapon and reckless endangerment. He’s being held on $25,000 bond.

Latimer’s attorney, Harvey Steinberg, asked people to withhold judgment until they know the facts, saying there’s a provocative backstory involved.

Latimer, 27, was also arrested in 2016 due to an unpaid traffic ticket.

A former second-round pick, Latimer spent his first four seasons in the NFL with the Denver Broncos. He played his last two seasons with the New York Giants before signing with Washington in March.

In six seasons, Latimer has caught 70 passes for 935 yards and 6 touchdowns.
