Montae Nicholson is a promising young safety for the Washington Redskins who started the first seven games of the season before the Redskins acquired Ha Ha Clinton-Dix from Green Bay. Since then, he’s played sparingly, and in light of recent events, it looks like it will stay that way.

The 23-year-old was arrested Tuesday after engaging in a violent altercation in the middle of a Virginia street around 2 am.

Fox News reported that the incident occurred after Nicholson and 24-year-old Sydney Maggiore were honking their car horn at an unidentified man and woman before things turned physical. But, a witness told TMZ Sports that tensions flared before the car incident.

In any event, TMZ Sports obtained footage of the Michigan State product violently pummeling the man and a man in a jean jacket and bodyslamming another who tried to restrain him. Maggiore is believed to have hit the female with a beer bottle.

Montae is wearing the red hoodie in the video.

Loudon County Sheriffs reportedly arrested Nicholson and his female companion at the scene. Montae was booked for assault and battery and drunk in public, but released  on $2,500 bond a short time later.

The two who were assaulted were taken to an area hospital, where they were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

The Redskins gave the sterile corporate response to the news.

It will be interesting to see if the Redskins award his with a max extension.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
