According to Washington, the confrontation came about because he was "hanging out with other girls." From there, their stories differ a little bit.
He says things never got physical (he meant with his girlfriend, no word on how physical things got with the girls he was "hanging out with"), and she pointed to the red marks on her neck and claimed that's where Washington grabbed her as he pushed her away from their baby.
In Washington's defense, millions of people watch him play every Sunday, and rarely has he ever been seen hitting anyone. Either way, it probably disqualifies him from any Father of the Year awards.
The incident leaves the Raiders with two problems at cornerback now. They've yet to franchise tag or sign Nnamdi Asomugha to a long-term deal, and now they have to deal with this from their other starter.
