The following is from the Washington Post’s report regarding the charges that Guice is facing:
“Guice faces charges that include one count of strangulation, which is a felony, according to a spokesman for the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office. The other charges are three counts of assault and battery, as well as one count of destruction of property.”
News of Guice’s arrest adds to the bad publicity Washington is facing follows last month’s report detailing the culture of harassment that has been prevalent inside the Washington Football Team.
Guice’s arrest and release comes on the same day as more legal news emerged regarding New York Giants CB DeAndre Baker, who faces up to life in prison on charges of armed robbery.
