Deshazor Everett charged with involuntary manslaughter over fatal car crash
Washington Commanders defensive back Deshazor Everett has been arrested and charged with involuntary manslaughter over a fatal car crash in December.
Everett was the driver of a Nissan sports car that went off the road on Gum Spring Road in Loudoun County, Va. on Thursday, Dec. 23. The car hit several trees and rolled over. The woman in the passenger seat, 29-year-old Olivia Peters, was taken to a hospital and died. Everett was taken to the hospital to be treated for serious injuries.
On Tuesday, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office released a statement in which they said Everett had been arrested and charged with involuntary manslaughter after turning himself in. They said in their statement that Everett was traveling at twice the speed limit before his crash.
The police say Everett is being held at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on a $10,000 secured bond.
Everett’s attorney issued a statement in which they said they were continuing to investigate the matter and asking for patience.
