    Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis is a suspect in the assault of a woman at a club early Thursday morning, TMZ reported.

    The woman said a man approached her aggressively at Josephine Nightclub in Northwest and grabbed her so she threw a drink on him.

    A short time later, she claims, Davis retaliated by throwing a drink back on her -- and then striking her in the lip with an object. Sources at the club tell us the woman claimed she was hit with a champagne bottle.

    Police said surveillance cameras at the club caught the incident and police will review that footage, TMZ reported.

    Davis told NBC Washington's Dan Hellie that he wasn't arrested and that he actually called police. He said he threw orange juice -- not a bottle -- on a girl after she threw a drink on him.

    The surveillance footage will show that Davis never touched the woman, he told Hellie. Davis said it was no big deal.

    According to a police report about a simple assault at the club Thursday morning, a 31-year-old Baltimore woman flagged down a police officer. She told police she'd asked the club owner to call police but the owner had refused.

    The investigator who reviewed the surveillance video said that it showed the suspect reaching for the complainant in a calm manner at about 1 a.m. She responded by throwing a drink in his face, according to the police report.

    About five minutes later, the video shows the suspect approaching the complainant with a plastic bottle with an unknown liquid and then throwing that liquid on the woman, followed by the bottle, which didn't cause any injury, the investigator said. Bystanders then got in between the complainant and the suspect and someone accidentally elbowed the complainant, causing a cut on the inside of her lip.

    The woman told police that she is an NFL consultant, that she knows the suspect through her work with NFL players and that she never dated the suspect, according to the report.

    No charges have been filed. Police are investigating. Davis was expected to talk to police Thursday, TMZ reported.
