Browns’ Rookie Ausar Walcott Arrested

Cleveland Browns rookie linebacker Ausar Walcott is charged with attempted murder after allegedly punching a man outside a New Jersey bar early Sunday morning, Abbott Koloff of The Record reports.

Walcott, who told police he has been living with a friend in Maywood, was charged with first-degree attempted murder, second-degree aggravated assault and third degree endangering an injured victim, White said. He was arrested Tuesday morning after he turned himself in to police, and his bail was set at $500,000 cash, White said. He was scheduled to be sent to the Passaic County Jail in Paterson on Tuesday evening.

The report states the supposed incident took place at The Palace Gentlemen’s Club in Passaic. The charges are based on the belief Walcott punched a 24-year-old man identified as Derrick Jones in the head just after 3 a.m. on Sunday.
