DC police: Eagles' Mills, Wiz's Robinson arrested for fight | AP sports

Eagles veteran cornerback Jalen Mills was arrested for disorderly conduct early Saturday morning outside a Washington, D.C. nightclub stemming from a fight which sent National Basketball Association player Devin Robinson to the hospital.

Mills was arrested outside a Washington, D.C. nightclub early Saturday morning following a fight with Washington Wizards player Devin Robinson, according to NBC Sports Philadelphia.

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.

The incident happened after a Wizards' party at the Opera Night Club in Washington D.C.

The Wizards took action quickly, releasing a statement Saturday that said Robinson will not be back with the team next season.

Robinson required a visit to the hospital as a result, and both men were arrested.

Both the 6-foot, 191-pound Mills and the 6-foot-8, 200-pound Robinson were charged with disorderly affray, which generally refers to fighting in a public place. "No further comment will be provided at this time".

Mills is set to go into his fourth season with the Eagles. "We will not extend a qualifying offer to him for the 2019-20 season", it read.

Originally a seventh-round pick by Philadelphia in 2016, Mills fell a bit in the draft due to a 2014 arrest for second-degree battery of a woman, an allegation Mills has always denied. He was a member of the Eagles' Super Bowl championship team after the 2017 season, when he started 15 of 16 regular-season games.

Robinson, who played in seven games this past season for the Wizards, went undrafted out of Florida in 2017, and was also with the Capital City Go-Go of the National Basketball Association G League this season.
