Former Missouri tailback Washington arrested

BY foxsports • September 12, 2010

Former Missouri captain Derrick Washington has been arrested again.

The Boone County Sheriff's Department says Washington, who played tailback for the Tigers before he was suspended from the team, was arrested early Sunday on suspicion of third-degree domestic assault, a misdemeanor. Washington posted $1,000 bond.

A message was left seeking comment from Washington's lawyer, Bogdon Susan.

The 21-year-old Washington was charged in August with sexually assaulting a former tutor. He was permanently suspended from the Missouri team about a week before those formal charges were filed.

Washington's arrest on Sunday was first reported by The Kansas City Star.
