Mark Dycio, The attorney for Montae Nicholson, said the Redskins safety did stay at the hospital with the 21-year old woman who died of an overdose Thursday morning. Dycio said Nicholson stayed until her family arrived. He said Nicholson had found her in the bathroom unresponsive so he and a friend took her to the emergency room.
Washington Redskins safety Montae Nicholson is back in the news for another incident not related to football. TMZ reports that Nicholson and another man brought an unidentified 21 year old woman to an ER in Ashburn, VA on Thursday at around 1:30 am. She was pronounced dead at the ER from an apparent drug overdose.
”The two males who brought her to the emergency room immediately left the area but have since been identified and located.”
There is now an active investigation into this woman’s death.
“The case is an active investigation being conducted by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division,”
TMZ reports that Nicholson missed today’s practice because of the incident and not the ankle injury he has been dealing with. He was limited in practice yesterday.

Nicholson was involved in another late night incident last year that led to criminal charges following a fight in the streets. The charges against Nicholson were later dropped, but the Redskins placed him on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury List which ended his season. Nicholson returned this year, and has been the starting FS until an ankle injury sidelined for the last few weeks.
