NFL - Redskins' Latimer arrested on assault, firearm charges

(Reuters) - NFL wide receiver Cody Latimer was arrested shortly after midnight on Saturday on charges including assault in the second degree and illegal discharge of a firearm, according to a Douglas County, Colorado sheriff report.

Latimer, a wide receiver who signed with the Washington Redskins in April, was one of three people taken into custody after authorities responded to a call of shots fired inside an apartment.

“We are aware of the situation and have informed the NFL League Office,” a Redskins spokesman said. “We will continue to gather more information and have no further comment at this time.”

The 27-year-old won a Super Bowl with the Denver Broncos in 2016 and also previously played for the New York Giants.
