New York Red Bulls center back Wilman Conde has been charged with aggravated assault by the Fort Lee, N.J. Police according to a report by The Bergen Record.
The newspaper states that Conde interfered with a police officer that was investigating a noise complaint and pushed the officer as he tried to question a member of the 29-year-old's group. Conde was described in the report as heavily intoxicated and belligerent to the responding officers. The New York Red Bulls responded to the news.
"We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering information. We have no further comment at this time," the Red Bulls responded to Goal.com via email.
For Conde, this is another set back for a player who the Red Bulls brought in this offseason to replace U.S. international Tim Ream, who departed for English Premiership side Bolton. The Colombian native has been sidelined with injuries and has appeared only twice this season for New York. If Conde is found guilty, it is possible the defender will face a suspension from Major League Soccer.
