Nicki Jhabvala reports that Redskins WR Cody Latimer was arrested in Englewood Colorado on five charges, including second-degree assault, menacing, illegal discharge of a firearm, prohibited use of a weapon, and reckless endangerment.
Latimer is being held on a $25,000 bond.
The Douglas County Sherrif Department announced that they responded to a call around 12:11 am on Saturday, May 16 that described an argument and gunshots coming from inside a nearby apartment.
Deputies detained three individuals, one being Latimer. One person had minor injuries not related to a gunshot. No other injuries were reported.
The Washington Redskins issued the following statement (per Ben Standig) regarding Latimer:
“We are aware of the situation and have informed the NFL League Office. We will continue to gather more information and have no further comment at this time.”
Latimer, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Broncos back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $3,708,650 rookie contract before agreeing to a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Giants in 2018.
Latimer re-signed to a one-year deal with New York last year and was testing the market as an unrestricted free agent before agreeing to a contract with the Redskins a few months ago.
In 2019, Latimer appeared in 15 games and recorded 24 receptions for 300 yards receiving (12.5 YPC) and two touchdowns, to go along with 570 kickoff return yards.
