WASHINGTON – Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Jalen Mills and Washington Wizards striker Devin Robinson have been arrested after a fight in front of a nightclub, Washington police said on Saturday.
Karimah Bilal, Program Manager for the Communications Bureau of the Metropolitan Police Department, confirmed in an email to the Associated Press that the name of Mills in the police report is the Eagles player.
The 6-foot and 191-pound Mills and the 6-foot-8 and 200-pound Robinson were accused of brawling in disorder, which usually refers to fighting in a public place.
The two men were "involved in a verbal altercation that turned into a physical altercation on the sidewalk adjacent to the Opera Night Club" in the early hours of Saturday morning, according to the police report.
Robinson was taken to the hospital for treatment, according to the report.
He also lost his job with the wizards.
"We are aware of this morning's incident involving Devin and are disappointed with his actions.We will not propose him any qualifying for the 2019-20 season," said the NBA team in a communicated.
The Eagles said in their statement that they were "aware of the situation" and "continued to gather more information". They said that they will not comment anymore now.
Mills started eight games with the Eagles last season before getting injured in December after injuring one foot.
Philadelphia eliminated him from LSU in the seventh round in 2016. He was a member of the Eagles Super Bowl champion team after the 2017 season, when he had started 15 of the 16 regular season games.
Robinson participated in seven of Wizards' 82 games last season and also played for their NBA G League affiliate, Capital City Go-Go.
