Police say Nicholson and 24-year-old Sydney Maggiore were involved in a verbal altercation that escalated to a physical assault of two victims, one man and one woman.

The Redskins announced that they placed safety Montae Nicholson on the reserve/NFI list.

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Department arrived and arrested Nicholson after the attack on Tuesday, December 18.

This comes after he was arrested on assault and battery and drunk in public charges after a Tuesday morning incident in Ashburn, Virginia.

Nicholson is seen throwing multiple punches at a man outside a vehicle in a parking lot in Virginia.

Nicholson - wearing a red hoodie - is going after another man in a jean jacket while other people in the melee desperately try to restrain him. He started the first seven games of his second National Football League season before moving to a backup role for the past seven after the Redskins traded for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

Then, according to the victims, the female suspect attacked the female victim with a beer bottle, while the male suspect attacked the male victim.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden confirmed that Nicholson will be sitting out Sunday's game but did not say if any other punishment will be meted out over the incident. CBS affiliate WUSA reports Maggiore is Nicholson's girlfriend. "We are gathering more information and will not comment until we have further details". He started the first seven games of his second National Football League season before moving to a backup role for the past seven after the Redskins traded for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. Nicholson has not played in the last four games.

Redskins linebacker Mason Foster said, "I haven't talked to him".

It is unclear if he will play again for the team this season.
