Man accused of stabbing Redskins player back in court
Jason Shorter was already in enough trouble.
Shorter stands accused of stabbing Redskins punt and kick returner Brandon Banks outside a District nightclub in February. He was arrested and charged in connection to the attack, then he was released as his case progressed through the court system.
Shorter had been out of jail until this week, when he allegedly slipped up again.
An officer stopped Shorter for driving 67 mph in a 35 mph zone, according to court documents. In the glove compartment of the 2004 Acura he was driving, officers found a loaded 9mm Smith & Wesson.
A hearing for Shorter was scheduled for Friday morning, according to the D.C. Superior Court docket.
Redskins fans could be forgiven for forgetting about the Brandon Banks case this offseason. After all, they've also got Dan Snyder's war on local media and defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth's sexual abuse allegations to follow.
Banks was stabbed outside the The Park at Fourteenth nightclub in Northwest D.C. during a scuffle that might have started with a quip over fashion. He was hospitalized and needed a tube in his chest to prevent his left lung collapsing.
Banks' friend, Christopher Lee Nixon, was also hurt in the incident.
