Domestic violence charge against Saints' Junior Galette dismissed


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/19/2015) The misdemeanor domestic violence charge against Saints linebacker Junior Galette has been dismissed, per a statement by his attorney. The Kenner City Attorney's Office confirmed the dismissal, per the New Orleans Adovcate.

"This happened after the four witnesses in the case were interviewed and after further investigation," attorney Ralph Whalen said. "The case will not be prosecuted."

The woman who accused Galette of beating her has filed a civil lawsuit against the Saints linebacker, the Associated Press reports. The lawsuit also contains allegations against other Saints players.

Whalen said Thursday that the lawsuit is "filled with lies" and was filed only after his client rejected a $2 million "shakedown."

"We unequivocally rejected their offer because we are confident an investigation and a full hearing of the facts will reveal that Junior Galette behaved appropriately and will be cleared," Whalen said.

Galette was arrested and booked with misdemeanor battery on Jan. 5 after the police responded to a disturbance at his home in Kenner, a suburb of New Orleans.

Loomis acknowledged he has not had any contact with Galette following the incident, but noted that the team's security director had been in contact with him as of two weeks ago. Loomis also noted that he is unsure of the league had begun its independent investigation on Galette.
