Walcott, was charged with first-degree attempted murder, second-degree aggravated assault and third degree endangering an injured victim, police said.

The linebacker was arrested Tuesday morning on the above criminal counts after he turned himself in to police; his bail was set at $500,000 cash.

The report states the supposed incident took place at The Palace Gentlemen's Club in Passaic, N.J., stemming from an alleged fight Walcott instigated.

The charges stem from Ausar Walcott reportedly punching a 24-year-old man identified as Derrick Jones in the head just after 3 a.m. on Sunday.

Walcott signed with the Browns last month after attending the team's rookie minicamp.

The New Jersey native played college football at Virginia, appearing in 45 games and making 128 tackles in four years with the Cavaliers of the ACC.

The victim remains in critical condition at a local hospital.

UPDATE: Just like the Patriots quickly cutting ties with Hernandez, the Browns have officially released Walcott, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
