Report: New York Red Bulls center back Conde arrested
New York Red Bulls center back Wilman Conde was arrested on charges of aggravated assualt in the early morning hours on Saturday, according to a report on NorthJersey.com.
The arrest came after an altercation with police officers at an apartment in Fort Lee, New Jersey. Conde was later released on his own recognizance.
According to the report, the incident occured at 5:30 am on Saturday morning, after police officers responded to a noise complaint. Upon arrival, the officers encountered Conde and a few friends. When officers attempted to identify one of the friends, Conde “became loud and got in the way of the officer and began to push him."
Conde will now await a court date.
Since joining the Red Bulls in the offseason, Conde has seen extremely limited playing time, due to injuries. The former Chicago Fire standout started and went 90 minutes against Colorado and Montreal in late March, but has not played since due to a pulled groin.
The Red Bulls released the following statement regarding Conde's arrest on Saturday.
"We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering information. We have no further comment at this time."
