LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — Former Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis is wanted by D.C. Police following a domestic violence incident last month.
Police say Davis, who is no longer with the organization, is a suspect in a domestic violence/simple assault. Police say the incident took place at about 3 a.m. June 2 in the 2400 block of 18th Street NW in Washington’s Adams Morgan neighborhood.
A statement released by D.C. Police says Davis currently lives in Leesburg, Virginia, but police are asking anyone with information on Davis’ whereabouts to call 202-727-9099.

Davis has had previous run-ins with the law and the NFL during his time with the Redskins.
Davis was suspended for the final four games of the 2011 season after he and teammate Trent Williams tested positive for marijuana. Davis again violated the league’s substance abuse policy in February, and he has been suspended by the NFL for the first six games of the 2014 season.
Also in February, Davis was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated near Tysons Corner in northern Virginia. Davis pleaded not guilty and a judge dismissed the case in April after finding police did not have enough cause to initiate a traffic stop.
Davis was a second-round draft pick by the Redskins in 2008. His best season was in 2011, when he had 59 catches for 796 yards before his first suspension.
