Cooley Takes a Hands-On Approach



    Capitol Hill media and staffers got more than they signed up for when Redskins players Chris Cooley and Lorenzo Alexanderdecided to get physical during a charity game of capture the flag.

    The event was set up to raise awareness and money for heart health, and included appearances by local athletes like the Mystics Alana Beard, the racing presidents and Wizards mascot G-Wiz.

    The celebrity athletes were brought in to look pretty, but Cooley and Alexander had other ideas. According to Cooley, “Capture the flag got insane.”

    Although Cooley’s team lost, he clearly enjoyed getting hands-on with the opposition, as captured by Roll Call photographer Tom Williams.

    According to his @pennstatetom Twitter feed, Cooley was guilty of some "illegal use of hands" on Roll Call's Melanie Zanona.
