WASHINGTON — Former Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis has turned himself in to police in a domestic violence case.

Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Araz Alali says Davis turned himself in Thursday morning. Police say Davis, who lives in Leesburg, Virginia, is suspected in a domestic assault that occurred in the early morning hours of June 2 in the Adams Morgan neighborhood.

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.

Davis played for the Redskins from 2008-2013.
