From The Washington Post:
Washington Football Team running back Derrius Guice was arrested Friday afternoon on domestic violence-related charges, including one count of strangulation, which is a felony, according to a spokesman for the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.
Guice turned himself in at the Loudoun Adult Detention Center at roughly 5 p.m. He was handcuffed in the parking lot of the facility before being taken inside.

Now before we pat the team formerly known as the Redskins on the back for taking action quickly, Guice has only played in five games over the past two seasons.
Sure they're trying to overhaul the culture in Washington after a rough off-season, but they're also loaded at the position.
Something tells me if they were thin at the position and it was a star player things might have played out differently.
