"I regret that the situation has brought this kind of attention to my family and my team," Washington said in a statement. "I look forward to resolving it as soon as possible."
The police report filed in relation to the case contains a detailed account from the alleged victim's perspective. Most concerning: allegations that Washington used force great enough to throw down the alleged victim, breaking her clavicle.
The charges against Washington and the separate four-game NFL suspension he faces in relation to the league's substance-abuse policy have focused negative attention on him entering what could be a pivotal season. Washington's contract includes a $10 million option bonus payable in March 2014.
