Redskins free-agent Fred Davis: If the pitcher doesn't fit, you must acquit

If you haven’t been paying attention to the best Redskins legal drama since Albert Haynesworth felt up an unsuspecting waitress, it’s okay, we’ll get you up to speed. What this case boils down to is whether or not Redskins unrestricted free-agent tight end Fred Davis actually threw a pitcher at a young woman inside of a club after he had poured liquid all over her. You read that correctly. Here’s how the inicdent occured according to NBC Sport’s Pro Football Talk:

The woman who is suing Fred Davis says that the incident between them began because Davis was jealous that she was hanging out with Ravens players, not Redskins players.

Plaintiff Makini R. Chaka testified that Davis, a free agent tight end who has played his entire career for the Redskins, approached her at a nightclub where she was with a group of Ravens players. Chaka says that Davis, whom she described as an acquaintance before the incident in question, didn’t like the fact that she was with players on the Ravens.

“The Redskins and the Ravens players don’t get along,” Chaka testified, via the Washingtonian. “A lot of the Redskins players are jealous of the Ravens players because they are a better team.”

According to Chaka, she was with a group of Ravens players when Davis approached her, grabbed her wrist and yelled profanities at her. Chaka responded by throwing a drink in Davis’s face, and Davis returned minutes later and dumped a pitcher of juice on her.

The lawsuit centers on whether Davis just threw liquid on Chaka or whether he also threw the pitcher itself and injured her lip, as she claims. A video of the incident is being circulated on Twitter by the Sulton Law Office, which according to The Big Lead is Chaka’s lawyer. The video, however, doesn’t add a whole lot of clarity beyond what was said in court.

Chaka is seeking more than $350,000 in punitive damages from Davis.
