SAINTS LINEBACKER APPEARS TO HIT WOMAN WITH BELT IN 2013 VIDEO.
New Orleans Linebacker Junior Galette is involved in another off the field issue.
Larry Holder of the Times-Picayune reported that there was footage released of Galette hitting a woman twice with a belt:
“In a YouTube video titled “Spring Break 2013 South Beach Brawl”, Galette strikes a woman twice with a belt in the midst of a scuffle. “
… “We were made aware of the video and we sent it to the league office,” Saints spokesman Greg Bensel said. “There is a process this will go through at the league-office level and we are waiting on that to be determined.”
The NFL had no comment on the video. Galette’s agent Alvin Keels did not respond to requests for comment.
The Saints issued a statement:
“We were made aware of the video and we sent it to the league office. There is a process this will go through at the league office level and we are waiting on that to be determined.”
Galette has a past of off-field allegations, including a January arrest on a domestic violence charge that was dismissed in February. He was due to meet with NFL officials about a potential punishment this week.
His timing is impeccable.
