DC police: Eagles’ Mills, Wiz’s Robinson arrested for fight

DC police: Eagles’ Mills, Wiz’s Robinson arrested for fight”

The details are sketchy as of now but we can report that Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Jalen Mills was arrested early Saturday morning in Washington D.C.

Karimah Bilal, program manager for the Metropolitan Police Department's office of communications, confirmed in an email to The Associated Press that the Mills named in the police report is the Eagles player. It started as a verbal altercation that later turned physical, according to reports.

Devin Robinson was arrested on Friday night and the Washington Wizards were quick to say the second-year player did not have a future with the franchise. Robinson was taken to Sibley Hospital.

Since then, both the Eagles and Wizards have acknowledged Mills' and Robinson's involvement in the incident, saying they are "aware of the situation". "We will not extend a qualifying offer to him for the 2019-20 season", the team's statement said. Robinson's minimal role with the team definitely made the decision to not extend him a qualifying offer much easier, but it's certainly refreshing to see swift action on the part of a professional sports team when dealing with an athlete's off-the-field issues.
