Everett, 29, joined the team in 2015 and was Washington’s special teams captain last season, NBC Sports reported.

According to a statement issued by his attorney, Kaveh Noorishad, Everett voluntarily appeared at the Loudoun County Magistrate’s Office on Tuesday “where he was served with a warrant for involuntary manslaughter” and released on bond a short time later.

“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,” Noorishad added.

According to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, a 2010 Nissan GT-R, which multiple reports confirmed Everett was driving, rolled over after leaving the right side of the roadway and striking several trees, WUSA reported.

Everett was “treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries” following the crash, the sheriff’s office confirmed.

Peters, 29, was transported to an area hospital immediately following the crash where she died, WUSA reported.

Her family confirmed to the TV station that Peters attended the University of South Carolina as an undergraduate and earned her master’s degree in occupational therapy from Shenandoah University in 2018, before relocating to Las Vegas.

On Tuesday, the Commanders issued the following statement, obtained by Sports Illustrated: “We are aware of these charges and are continuing to monitor the situation. We will have no further comment at this time.”
