More info has since emerged following the arrest of Cody Latimer.
The Washington Redskins receiver was arrested in Colorado on Saturday and charged with second-degree assault, menacing, illegal discharge of a firearm, prohibited use of a weapon, and reckless endangerment.
Mike Klis of 9News.com obtained information about Latimer’s arrest from a police report and it showed that it stemmed from Latimer getting into a fight with someone while playing poker at his friend’s apartment.
“According to English, Latimer was agitated, angry and blamed English for his confrontation with the other person. English said Latimer then pulled out a black handgun from the pocket of his hoodie and said he saved two bullets for English and his girlfriend Shal, according to the police report.
Latimer waved the gun around, although he didn’t point it directly at English or Shal, the police report says. According to English’s testimony and the police report, English and Shal were scared as Latimer said he was going to “kill everybody.”
Latimer then said he would never hurt English or Shal, according to the report, and emptied the magazine and cleared the chamber of his gun. However, Latimer later became angry again and at one point fired two shots in close proximity to English, the police report says.
English then pinned Latimer against the wall, and Latimer struck English on top of head with the gun, the police report says, and English fell, maintaining hold of Latimer. Again, English pushed Latimer against wall, and when Latimer told English to calm down, the altercation broke up, according to the police report.”
The six-year NFL veteran and former second-round pick by the Denver Broncos back in 2014 was signed by the Redskins during the 2020 offseason.
It is very likely head coach Ron Rivera might part ways with him since he wasn’t a lock to make the roster to begin with.
