Montae Nicholson is currently cooperating with authorities as they continue to investigate the death of a 21-year-old female who was brought to an Ashburn emergency room around 1:30 a.m. Thursday.
The Washington Redskins safety is said to be one of 2 men who brought the woman to the emergency room as she was unconscious and unresponsive when she arrived, according to TMZ.
“Here’s what we know … law enforcement has confirmed a “death investigation” is underway after an unconscious and unresponsive woman was brought to an E.R. in Ashburn, Virginia on Thursday around 1:30 AM.
The victim was pronounced dead in the emergency room. We’re told officials believe the woman died from a drug overdose.
Cops tell us … “The two males who brought her to the emergency room immediately left the area but have since been identified and located.”
Multiple sources connected to the situation tell us one of the men is Montae Nicholson.
Nicholson has NOT been arrested or charged with a crime. However, cops say the case is being actively investigated by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office and it’s likely they’ll speak with Nicholson as part of the probe.”
A rep for Nicholson would later tell TMZ that the Redskins safety did not leave after taking the woman to the emergency room, saying, “He stayed the whole time.”
A Redskins rep had this to say when asked by TMZ:
“We’ve been made aware of the tragic event and extend our deepest sympathies to the family who lost a loved one.”
“Our team has alerted the league office and is cooperating with local authorities. We fully support law enforcement and respect their process as they investigate the matter.”
