All charges against Redskins safety Montae Nicholson have been dropped due to insufficient evidence, per multiple reports. 

The charges stemmed from a Dec. 18 incident when Nicholson and Syndey A. Maggiore were arrested on assault and battery and drunk in public charges. According to the police report, Nicholson and Maggiore allegedly assaulted a man and woman in Ashburn, Va. Video of the alleged incident emerged on Dec. 19. 

The Redskins placed Nicholson on the Non-Football/Injury list the day after he was arrested. But with all charges dropped, Nicholson's in line to return to the field Week 1 of the 2019 season, and perhaps start opposite Landon Collins in the secondary.
