The arrest was one block north of the spot where Redskins safety Montae Nicholson was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault in December following a drunken brawl in the middle of the street. Nicholson, whose hearing was recently postponed until May, was also arrested for being drunk in public.
Jack Gruden spent the past year working as a video assistant for the team, filming and editing practice and game tape. He had been a volunteer on the coaching staff before that.
“We are aware of the arrest of Jack Gruden. We are gathering more information and will not comment until we have further details,” Tony Wyllie, the Redskins senior vice president of communications, said Monday in a statement.
