Here’s former Eagles DE Hugh Douglas’ mugshot

Things have not been going well for former Philadelphia Eagle Hugh Douglas.

Douglas was fired from his position as an ESPN TV personality in August for a messy racially-charged incident and now comes reports from TMZ that he was arrested in Connecticut yesterday on charges of assault and strangulation.

From the TMZ report:

The alleged incident went down in a Marriott hotel in Hartford … and the woman involved claims the former all-pro defensive end “grabbed her by the neck” and slammed her into the walls of the room several times.

He claims the injuries were sustained during rough sex.

Douglas was in the Philly area over the past few weeks and made a stop at the NovaCare Complex to watch an Eagles practice.

If losing his job wasn’t a big enough wake up call, maybe that mugshot will knock some sense into him.

    Wonder if Angelo Cataldi will talk about what a great guy he is again on his show.

    “If losing his job wasn’t a big enough wake up call, maybe that mugshot will knock some sense into him.”…
    He needs to calm down and get a hold of his anger before he seriously injures somebody. Nobody should be body slammed into walls or even subjected to racial slurs; this guy apparently has issues deep down inside that exfoliate in violent eruptions that one day may cause serious harm. My prediction- road rage auto accident.

    Instead of feeling blessed to have a career in radio and TV, Hugh developed a big attitude. Used to see him often at the stadiums and he had little time for anyone. In addition, he did not add much on the radio. Hopefully these two incidents will serve as a wake-up call.
