Galette’s attorney Ralph Whalen confirmed the arrest to Nick Underhill and Ramon Antonio Vargas of the New Orleans Advocate. He added that Galette has already posted bail.
The veteran was re-signed by the Redskins this offseason on a one-year pact after he missed the past two seasons with torn Achilles tendons in each of the last two years. He has yet to play in a game since 2014 when he played for the New Orleans Saints.
Galette has previously been accused of domestic violence, but charges were dismissed in 2015. He was also videotaped striking a woman with a belt while on a beach in 2013.
