Redskins LB Junior Galette arrested at spring break concert in Mississippi

Washington Redskins linebacker Junior Galette was arrested Friday at a concert that was part of a spring break party that drew 65,000 to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, USA TODAY Sports confirmed.

Galette was arrested on a single misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct after he failed to comply with an officer’s instructions at Biloxi’s MGM Park. The arrest first reported by WLOX-TV. The Spring Break Explosion concert at the minor league home of the Double-A Biloxi Shuckers was an unofficial part of the Biloxi Black Beach Weekend.

Galette, 29, remained in custody for about 90 minutes before he posted a $500 bond. A Biloxi police official reached late Monday did not have information about Galette’s first court appearance.

“We are aware of the incident,” the Redskins said in a statement to “We are gathering information and will refrain from making any further comment.”

Galette missed each of the last two seasons with Achilles tendon injuries. He was arrested on domestic violence and battery charges in July 2015. While the charges were dropped, the New Orleans Saints released Galette soon after the arrest.
