Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis must pay $20,000 in damages to a woman he assaulted in 2011 at a District of Columbia nightclub, a judge ruled earlier this week.

WTOP's Neal Augenstein reports that Davis, the 27-year-old Redskins veteran, threw liquid on Makini Chaka at the Josephine Nightclub in Northwest D.C. in January of 2011. He then threw a carafe at her.

Chaka was hit in the face during the incident causing minor injuries, but the vast majority of her $20,000 award is made up from lost wages and pain and suffering.

Davis signed a one-year contract to stay with Washington in late March.
