Phoenix • A judge in Phoenix has sentenced Arizona Cardinals linebacker Daryl Washington to a year of supervised probation for assaulting a former girlfriend who is the mother of his daughter.
The 27-year-old pleaded guilty nearly a month ago in Maricopa County Superior Court to aggravated assault arising out of a May 1 argument with the woman.
Authorities say Washington choked the woman and caused a fall that broke her right collarbone.
A court spokesman says Washington was sentenced Wednesday by Judge M. Scott McCoy.
