An altercation between Jalen Mills, cornerback for the Philadelphia Eagles, and Devin Robinson, who played for the Washington Wizards this season, concluded with the arrest of both men.
The fight happened around 3:00 a.m. near the Opera Ultra Louge, which is located in Northwest Washington D.C. Robinson was taken to the hospital for treatment but ended up getting detained at the same police station Mills was taken to.
Source with knowledge of situation says altercation between Eagles’ Jalen Mills and Wizards’ Devin Robinson arose over Robinson feeling that Mills shouldn’t be in DC, since he doesn’t play for a Washington team.
Reckon that that thar town ain’t big enough fer the both of them …

Robinson has spent most of his two pro basketball seasons in the G-League. Through two seasons, he’s appeared in eight games for the Wizards. He scored 47 of his 49 career points this season. However, hip surgery kept him out for two months this season. His future now appears to be up in the air.
Following the incident, the Wizards released the following statement:
“We are aware of the incident this morning involving Devin and are disappointed in his actions. We will not extend a qualifying offer to him for the 2019-20 season.”
Mills had his 2018 season end prematurely when he was placed on injured reserve with a foot injury in early December. He’s been with the Eagles the last three seasons, starting 25 games during that span. He has three interceptions (all in 2017) and 167 total tackles.
Both men were charged with disorderly affray.
