Sacramento police say that Los Angeles Rams’ defensive lineman, Ethan Westbrooks, was busted on Sunday night after accusations of domestic violence.
Cops say they were called to the 8700 block of Center Parkway at 9:06 p.m. Sunday regarding a dispute. After arrival, police said they saw visible injuries to a woman’s body.
The 26-year—old Westbrooks was not at the location so police went to another nearby residence on Clearbrook Way where they cuffed and booked the NFL player on suspicion of domestic violence. Westbrooks left the jail the following morning.
The Rams released the cliché statement that sounds like most of the others we’ve heard from NFL teams over the years,
“We are aware of the serious allegations involving Ethan Westbrooks. We are in contact with authorities and gathering more information. Per team policy, we will continue to respect the legal process and have no further comment at this time.”
Westbrooks is currently a free agent after playing in all 16 games last season for the Rams while tallying two sacks and 24 tackles.
