When you are a rookie free agent, it is best not to do anything that would cause a team to reconsider signing you. Attempted murder will probably get you cut and that is the least of Walcott’s troubles right now.
Ausar Walcott, 23, punched the man in the head outside The Palace Gentlemen’s Club on Main Avenue around 3 a.m. Sunday, said Detective Andrew White of the Passaic police.
Walcott was charged with first-degree attempted murder, second-degree aggravated assault and third degree endangering an injured victim, White said. He was arrested Tuesday morning after he turned himself in to police, and his bail was set at $500,000 cash, White said. He was scheduled to be sent to the Passaic County Jail in Paterson on Tuesday evening.
Strip club + 3 a.m. + liquor = Bad news.
The victim’s name is Derrick Jones and he is in critical condition with life threatening issues. I am sure Walcott will say this was self defense, as more details become available we will update you.
Browns have released Walcott.
