You may or may not remember a month back we reported a story/video of New Orleans Saints linebacker Junior Galette whipping a woman with a belt during a brawl on a Miami beach in 2013. When the video was released to the public a month back, the Saints indicated that they had knowledge of the incident shortly after it occurred but were waiting for a proper investigation to be completed.
The video can be seen below:
Junior was also arrested in January of this year on simple battery charges after a 22-year-old woman called police on him.
In light of the public evidence and Galette’s checkered past, they released the fourth year linebacker earlier this week. Shortly after, Galette deleted his Twitter account, but his girlfriend’s Twitter had never been more active. She (or most likely he) went on an aggressive personal tirade against Saint’s coach Sean Payton. Grab some poporn for this one…
Back story: Zach Strife is an offensive tackle on the Saints who allegedly walked in on his wife raw dogging another guy. He reportedly hasn’t been the same since.
This is an interesting strategy Galette is employing to be picked up by another team. I’d bet that Belichick picks him up for a year and he turns into a Boy Scout Hall of Famer.
Or he’ll be in and out of prison for the rest of his life.
Your move, Sean.
