A Redskins player has been arrested

A member of the Redskins defensive line was booked after the win at Jacksonville, snapping the Redskins four-game losing streak.

Joe Joseph, the legendary Redskins with two first names who made it to the active roster for yesterday’s contest has been arrested for DUI.

Jason Ried of the Washington Post reports:

Redskins’ defensive tackle Joe Joseph was arrested at 3 a.m. Monday on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Vincent DiBenedetto, an investigator and the acting public information officer for the Sheriff’s Department, said the department had Joe Louis Joseph, 25, in custody Monday, but could not confirm whether he was a member of the Washington Redskins.

However, a booking photo of Joseph matched photos of the ballplayer on the NFL.com and Redskins web sites.

No other details were available on the circumstances of Joseph’s arrest. Redskins Senior Vice President Tony Wyllie said that “we’re gathering all the facts right now. And that’s really all I can say.”

Certainly this would make headlines, but the fact that no one knows who the hell Joe Joseph is makes this a non-story.  We are posting this because the Redskins are battling Dallas for the cellar and we need stories.
