This is such a strange story.
On Friday, Eagles cornerback Jalen Mills found himself arrested and cited for disorderly conduct in Washington D.C. after an altercation with Washington Wizards player Devin Robinson outside of a nightclub.
Both were cited, but it was Robinson who had to be taken to a hospital afterwards.
Devin Robinson was detained after getting into a fight with Philadelphia Eagles player Jalen Mills at the Opera nightclub, The Post has learned.

According to Buckner’s story in the Washington Post:
Robinson and Jalen Mills, a defensive back with the Eagles since 2016, got into a verbal altercation that escalated into a fight on the sidewalk near the Opera Ultra Lounge at 2:56 a.m., according to D.C. police. Both men were arrested and charged with disorderly affray.
Robinson, a 6-foot-8, 240-pound forward from the University of Florida, was transported to Sibley Hospital for treatment. He was then released and taken to the department’s 2nd District station, where Mills was also detained.
This is why the altercation reportedly took place:
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 …

Following the news of his arrest, the Wizards quickly issued a statement that said, in part, Robinson wouldn’t be back with the team this fall.
“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.”
