Another Miami egghead in trouble: Sean Taylor sought in shooting incident

Police say safety 'person of interest;' one report says he faces aggravated assault

MIAMI - Miami-Dade County police were looking Friday for Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor, who they describe as a “person of interest” in an assault case.
“We need to speak to him, we don’t know if he’s a victim, witness or suspect,” said police spokesman Mary Walters.
Taylor is being sought for firing shots at the home of someone he believes had stolen a vehicle of his, Fox Sports reported Friday night, citing unnamed sources within the Miami-Dade County police department.
Taylor will face a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, Fox Sports reported, and he will turn himself in Saturday.
The assault happened Wednesday night and shots were fired, Walters said. No one was injured.
Walters said she didn’t have further details and police were still investigating.
Taylor’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, declined comment Friday. Taylor and the Redskins didn’t immediately return phone messages seeking comment.
Taylor, who wants a new contract, has been working out in Miami despite pleas from coach Joe Gibbs to join the team in voluntary workouts at their home base in suburban Washington. He signed a seven-year, $18 million deal as the No. 5 overall draft pick in the 2004 draft.
The former Miami Hurricanes standout has had a tempestuous start to his NFL career.
He has fired two agents, was fined for skipping one day of the NFL’s mandatory rookie symposium and was accused of spitting on a player during a game at Cincinnati, although he was not punished because the league said there was no video evidence.
He was also charged with drunken driving in October, when he was pulled over at 2:45 a.m. after attending a birthday party for receiver Rod Gardner. Those charges were dismissed in January.
