Derrius Guice will likely never see an NFL football field again after he was arrested Friday on one count of strangulation, three counts of assault and battery and one count of destruction of property. Strangulation is a Class 6 felony in Virginia. The domestic violence-related accusations prompted the Washington Football Team to cut him.
The former LSU running back Derrius Guice is accused of abuse on 3 separate occasions since February.
The Washington Post report cites the Montgomery County Police Dept. saying it determined the alleged assaults happened Feb. 14, March 13 and April 17 at Guice’s Ashburn, Virginia home.
Peter D. Greenspun, Guice’s high-profile attorney, released a statement to reporters, saying “investigators did not seek a statement or any input from (Guice) before the warrants were issued,” and the Washington Football Team released him “was released without a single question as to what occurred.”
The 23-year-old was released on $10,000 bond.
Washington selected Guice in the second round of the 2018 draft out of LSU, but didn’t make his debut until 2019 due to a torn ACL.
Guice played in just five games last season after injuring his his right knee and then his left knee again.
