Junior Galette Arrested After Incident With "Dancer"


Updated 12:53p.m.

The NFL’s domestic violence epidemic may have struck the Saints today. Kenner Police confirmed that linebacker and Co-Captain Junior Galette was arrested and booked with Simple Battery.

 

The incident occurred at Galette’s Kenner home. The female victim allegedly spent the night with Galette before the incident occurred. She claims that Galette and his cousin attacked her after she refused to leave without cab fare. Galette told police that the victim was a "dancer" and not an intimate.

 

Galette transferred from Temple University after being suspended from their football team. He later talked about the trouble with the T-P, saying, “I was 19, 20 years old, and I wasn't mature and ready for being that captain and being here and getting to the meetings 30 minutes early. I saw it a whole 'nother way. And now I'm just like, 'Man, what was I doing?’"

 

Galette was a favorite with fans and players alike. He completed college at Stillman College in Tuscaloose, Alabama and then signed with the Saints in 2014. In 2014, he inked a four year, 41.5 million dollar contract extension.

 

Like the rest of the team, he had a disappointing 2014 season with only 10 sacks.
