METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) -

The Saints have released outside linebacker Junior Galette, according to our partners at Nola.com | Times Picayune.

Galette signed a multi year extension with the club just last year but was involved in two off the field incidents that including one domestic violence arrest where the charges were later dropped.

Our partners at NOLA. com/The Times-Picayune also reported that Galette was captured on camera hitting a woman multiple times with a belt and throwing punches in a crowd of people allegedly at South Beach. The video, titled "Spring Break 2013 South Beach Brawl" appeared online on March 25, 2013, but was only recently connected to Galette.
