NFL Player, Deshazor Everett, Charged with Involuntary Manslaughter


Deshazor Everett, a safety for the Washington Commanders, has been charged with involuntary manslaughter resulting from a fatal crash in December that killed Olivia Peters, his girlfriend. 

On Tuesday morning, Everett turned himself in. The NFL player signed with Washington in 2015. 

“Mr. Everett voluntarily appeared earlier today at the Loudoun County Magistrate’s Office where he was served with a warrant for involuntary manslaughter,” Everett’s attorney, Kaveh Noorishad, said in a statement. “Shortly thereafter, he was released on bond. Our team continues to investigate this matter as we intend on vigorously defending Mr. Everett against these allegations. We continue to ask that judgment be reserved until all facts are fully investigated and litigated in the proper forum. At this time we cannot comment any further due to the pending litigation.”

Everett, 29, was driving a 2010 Nissan GT-R at the time of the incident. According to the Loundon County (VA) Sheriff’s Office, around 9:15 p.m. the vehicle “left the right side of the roadway, struck several trees, and rolled over.” 

The team is aware of the situation, the Commanders said Tuesday. The team is “continuing to monitor the situation. We will have no further comment at this time.”

After an investigation, it was found that Everett was driving more than double the legal speed limit of 45 miles per hour. 

Peters, 29, was riding as the passenger in the vehicle. She was taken to StoneSprings Hospital. She died from her injuries.

Although he did not sustain life-threatening injuries, Everett was also hurt in the wreck. In December, he was placed on Washington’s reserve/non-football injury list.
