Watch the wild police footage from Junior Galette's arrest.
Washington Redskins linebacker Junior Galette was arrested in Mississippi back in April, following a fight that went down at the annual Black Beach Weekend in Biloxi, Mississippi. The police officer's body cam footage of that incident was released today, and it shows the 6'2 260-pound linebacker getting chased and tased before being placed under arrest.
According to TMZ, cops witnessed Galette punch someone around 10:30pm at MGM Park where the concert was being held, and then take off running when cops tried to approach him.
Officers eventually caught up with Galette who was then subdued by way of a taser. He was ultimately arrested for disorderly conduct and failure to comply, though authorities say he was "very cooperative" after being chased down.
Galette, who was later released on $500 bond, was not charged with assault because police did not believe the victim wanted to cooperate. TMZ Sports also added Galette struck a plea deal with prosecutors, which means the case is effectively closed.
The 29-year-old linebacker is in his third season with the Redskins, though he missed both the 2015 and 2016 season due to torn Achilles. So far this season he has recorded nine tackles and one sack. Galette played for the New Orleans Saints in his first five seasons.
