Phoenix police are investigating a report involving Cardinals inside linebacker Daryl Washington in a domestic dispute. A woman called police Wednesday afternoon claiming she was assaulted by Washington earlier that day, according to the Phoenix Police Department.
When police arrived at the home in Ahwatukee on Wednesday, Washington had left.No arrests have been made, and police were still looking for Washington.
"These are serious accusations that we are closely monitoring. Until all the facts are determined, and out of respect for the process, we will decline any further comment at this point," a Cardinals spokesperson said in a statement.
Washington, 26, has been suspended for the first four games of the 2013 season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
This is not Washingtons first run-in with the law. When he was 17, he received probation for another incident in which he and a group of friends were involved in a fight and stole money from the lone victim.
