LaVar Arrington has been hurt in motorcycle accident.
Former Washington Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington broke his arm and three bones in his leg in a motorcycle accident this afternoon in Prince George’s County, but he did not suffer any life-threatening injuries, according to his agent, Carl Poston.
The single-vehicle accident occurred near the intersection of Route 50 and the Capital Beltway, according to police. Arrington crashed his motorcycle around 1 p.m. while heading west on Route 50 near Exit 7, according to Maryland State Police spokesman First Sgt. Russell Newell. Arrington was taken by ambulance to Prince George’s Hospital Center. No one else was injured in the crash.
Arrington, who will turn 29 Wednesday, and the Redskins parted ways in March 2006 after six seasons. After lengthy negotiations, the team allowed the former Pro Bowl linebacker to become a free agent. In return, he agreed to forfeit millions of dollars in unpaid bonus money.
Arrington, a Pittsburgh native, maintained a home in Annapolis and said repeatedly over the years that he would make this area his home even after his playing days concluded.
He became the face of the Redskins after being selected second overall in the 2000 NFL draft, but his relationship with the franchise soured. A three-time Pro Bowler, he was benched for much of the early part of the 2005 season, engaged in a lengthy feud with team owner Daniel Snyder over a $6.5-million bonus payment he said was due to him and clashed with the organization over the handling of various injuries.
It’s good to hear Arrington will recover.
