*It was reported early Wednesday that former Washington Redskins and USC Trojans tight end Fred Davis was wanted for domestic violence in the Nation’s Capital.
DC Police said they are looking for the 28-year-old athlete, who lives in Leesburg, Virginia. He’s suspected in a domestic assault that occurred last June in the Adams Morgan neighborhood, known for its nightlife.
By Wednesday afternoon, Fox5’s Kyle Carmean tweeted that Davis actually threw dirt in a woman’s face, and said her friend looked like the rapper 2 Chainz.

Apparently, those were fighting words.
According to the Washington Post, the incident occurred around 3 a.m. on June 2 in Adams Morgan, on the 2400 block of 18th Street NW. Police released no further details on the incident, but authorities are asking for the public’s help in locating Davis, who they described as a 6’8″ or 6’9″ black male in his late 20s, weighing about 250 pounds.
Anyone with any information on Davis’ whereabouts is asked to call police at 202-727-9099 or text 50411. Cops are offering a $1,000 reward.
Davis was suspended indefinitely by the NFL in February for his second violation of the league’s substance-abuse policy. He said he was suspended for taking a supplement that included a banned substance. He says it wasn’t for marijuana, which was the reason for his first suspension. A day after his suspension was announced, he was charged in Virginia with driving while intoxicated.
He played for the Redskins from 2008-2013 and is now a free agent.
