Rookie charged with attempted murder

Posted Jun 26, 2013

Ausar Walcott signed with the team last month, and is in deep water today.


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.

UPDATE: Around mid-day Wednesday, the Browns announced they have released Walcott.
