Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Jalen Mills was arrested at 2:56 a.m. Saturday morning after an altercation with Washington Wizards player Devin Robinson at a nightclub in Washington, D.C., according to a report from NBC 10.

Karimah Bilal, program manager for the Metropolitan Police Department's office of communications, confirmed in an email to The Associated Press that the Mills named in the police report is the Eagles player.

Both men were arrested for disorderly affray, though Robinson was hospitalized for the injuries he sustained.

He also lost his job with the Wizards.

The Wizards issued a statement saying they were aware of what happened and that the club will not extend a qualifying offer to Robinson for next season. "We will not extend a qualifying offer to him for the 2019-20 season", the team's statement said.

As for the Eagles, they said they're also aware of the situation and won't provide further comment until more information is made available.

Mills, a seventh-round pick out of LSU in 2016, started every game for the Eagles in their Super Bowl-winning season two years ago and three interceptions. He was a two-way player for the Wizards the past two seasons, playing seven games and 95 total minutes in the National Basketball Association this season and spending most of his time with the Go-Go in the G-League.
