NFL players are losing it during the off-season. Former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez was charged with murder today, and he’s not the only professional player in trouble over allegedly trying to take someone’s life.

Ausar Walcott, rookie for the Cleveland Browns turned himself in for attempted murder Tuesday (June 26), for punching a man in the head. The linebacker attacked the victim outside of  the  Palace Gentleman’s Club in Passaic, N.J. Sunday (June 21).

Walcott struck 24-year-old Derrick Jones, critically injuring him. Jones, of New York, was taken to Manhattan’s Harlem Hospital Center. Authorities were still investigating the incident and “continuing to canvas the area for witnesses.”

One day after releasing a statement saying they were “aware” of the situation, the Browns released 23-year-old Walcott, a native of Hackensack, N.J. He is being charged with first degree attempted murder, second-degree aggravated assault and third-degree endangering a victim.

The former University of Virginia player is being held on $500,000 bond.Be sure to tune into the Midday’s weekly 10am-3pm with RoDigga!
