Former Browns rookie charged with attempted murder in New Jersey
UPDATE 1PM: The Browns have announced that they have released Walcott.
The bad news just never seems to stop for the Cleveland Browns. Ever.
Now, a recent signee, Ausar Walcott, is charged with attempted murder for allegedly punching a man outside of a bar around 3AM on Sunday morning. The victim is in critical condition.
The North Jersey Record reported that the linebacker, who played college ball at the University of Virginia, turned himself in to authorities on Tuesday. According to the report, he has been charged with first-degree attempted murder, second-degree aggravated assault, and third-degree endangering an injured victim.
The Browns signed Walcott last month, and issued a brief statement on Tuesday saying they were aware of the situation.
