Former Redskins WR Joshua Morgan Charged With Assault

Former Washington Redskins receiver Joshua Morgan is being accused of punching a man outside a D.C. nightclub.

Morgan has been charged with misdemeanor assault. D.C. Police say he punched a valet driver in the upper lip, an accusation Morgan denies.

Morgan reportedly got out of a car with two women and then punched the valet driver — who claims the football player was angry that he looked at his two female friends. The incident occurred outside a nightspot on 19th street NW early Sunday morning.

Morgan won the Redskins Man of the Year Award in 2013 for his performance on the field and community work. He grew up in D.C. and graduated from H.D. Woodson High School in Northwest Washington before playing college football for Virginia Tech. Morgan just signed a one-year deal with the Chicago Bears.
