Police in Douglas County responded to a call of shots being fired inside an apartment. No injuries were reported, but they believe Latimer was the shooter. He’s facing charges of assault in the second degree, menacing, illegal discharge of a firearm, prohibited use of a weapon, and reckless endangerment.
Latimer’s arrest comes on the heels of another troubling event in Florida, said to involve Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar and Giants cornerback Deandre Baker. Like Dunbar and Baker, Latimer is subject to fines, suspensions, and other discipline from the league office, even if this ultimately does not result in a court case or a conviction.
Latimer, 27, was a second round pick of the Broncos in 2014. In Denver, they waited and waited for his big breakout season, but that never came. After four years with the Broncos, he moved on to the Giants in 2017. Last year, Latimer had 24 receptions for 300 yards and two touchdowns. For his career, he has a grand total of 70 catches for 835 receiving yards and six scores. He may, or may not, have an opportunity to build on those totals with the Redskins in 2020.
In addition to Latimer, the Redskins have Terry McLaurin, Kelvin Harmon, Trey Quinn near the top of their WR depth chart. They also replenished the group by drafting Liberty’s Antonio Gandy-Golden in the fourth round last month.
