Police say the 23-year-old Walcott punched a man in the head outside of The Palace Gentlemen’s Club at 3 a.m. The victim, Derrick Jones, is currently in critical condition after his friends rushed him to a hospital. In addition to first-degree attempted murder, Walcott has been charged with second-degree aggravated assault and third-degree endangering an injured victim. He turned himself into police and bail was set at $500,000. An undrafted free agent out of Virginia, Walcott signed a contract with the Browns last month. The team issued the usual statement, saying they are "aware of the situation." Expect Walcott to be released in short order.
