Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis has been accused of assaulting a woman in a D.C. area nightclub early this morning ... TMZ has learned.

According to law enforcement sources, Davis -- a 2nd round draft pick in 2008 -- was identified as a suspect in a police report filed early this morning ... after an alleged altercation between the NFL player and a female clubgoer.

The woman told police she was hanging out at Josephine nightclub -- when Davis approached her in an "aggressive" manner 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.


Law enforcement sources tell us the club is equipped with surveillance cameras which captured the confrontation ... and cops will review the footage.

So far, no charges have been filed -- and we're told Davis is expected to speak with cops sometime today to give his side of the story.

Davis' people had no comment.

UPDATE: A Law enforcement official who reviewed the security tape tells us Davis appeared to be reaching for the woman in a calm manner when she threw the first drink in his face.

We're told Davis can be seen approaching the woman a short time later with a plastic bottle -- eventually pouring the contents on the woman and then throwing the bottle at her ... however the woman didn't appear injured.

The video then shows bystanders getting in between Davis and the woman -- and in the commotion, someone elbowed the woman in the mouth ... causing a cut inside of her upper lip.

Davis has since told NBCWashington.com that he threw "orange juice" on the woman.

Oh course he did it, just another pro athelete. Nothing is going to happen to him so why should he worry? Do it again, nothing still won't happen.

I would MAYBE believe her if there was some interaction between them before, but I'm unsure about out-of-the-blue walking up and grabbing her.

Jim you are a complete idiot bringing Auburn into this!! Auburn had nothing to do with the Cam Newton situation at Flordia or Mississippi State and did not pay him to come play(FACT!!). Plus non of their players have been arrested for beating women so if you are naming schools you should name OREGON whos little running back LaMichael James is the convicted WOMAN BEATER/CHOKER stupid! And if anyone has any morals that would always consider beating women worse than getting paid to play for a institution that makes BILLIONS(NCAA) or MILLIONS(schools) so get a life. You must be a bitter little Oregon fan or from some weak conference that can't compare to the SEC(easyily the clear undisputed best in country)! Don't post things that make you look more stupid than you already are cause everyone can see from that post you have NO CLUE what you are talking about loser!!! You probably didnt even graduate from college or even go!! Auburn will DOMINATE oregon...FACT!

"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."

That says it all. So, if pouring orange juice on her in retaliation is assault, then what is her throwing her drink in his face to start it all?!? Sounds like a bitch trying to start something she can't finish.

Why in the Heck didn't he just walk away...he should have been the better person you see a lot of these women hang out in these bars just to get something started in order to cop a case....And as well as the punishment goes the league is cracking down on these players...I need to stay tune on this one....
