Report: Former Redskins tight end Fred Davis turns himself in to police

Thursday July 24th, 2014

Former Redskins tight end Fred Davis has surrendered to police, according to NBC Washington's Mark Segraves

DC police announced Wednesday they were searching for Davis in relation to domestic violence charges stemming from a June 3 incident.

The NFL suspended Davis indefinitely in February 2014 for violating the league's substance abuse policy for a second time. He had previously been suspended four games for failing a drug test in 2011.

The day the suspension was announced, he was arrested and charged with DUI. Davis pled not guilty, and the case was dismissed after the judge ruled police did not have sufficient cause to initiate the stop. 

Davis was selected in the second round in 2008. He is currently a free agent.
