As we reported yesterday, Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington was being investigated by Phoenix police for a domestic violence incident involving a woman. 

Mia Garcia of Fox 10 in Arizona is reporting that Washington has now been arrested for assault.

The Cardinals organization released this statement.

“These are serious accusations that we are closely monitoring,” the Cardinals said in a statement before Washington was arrested. “Until all the facts are determined, and out of respect for the process, we will decline any further comment at this point.”

Washington reportedly got into some type of conflict with an ex-girlfriend, who had visible scars and bruises.  Washington is already going to miss the first four games of the season for a substance abuse violation.
