Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall picked up a $30,000 fine for an incident with an official during Pittsburgh's 27-12 win over Washington in Week 8, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Hall and Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders got into a particularly aggressive battle during a play while the Steelers were well in control of their Week 8 game. The two separated after a few words were exchanged, but Hall began speaking to the official. As he did that, he removed his helmet, drawing a 15-yard penalty.

Hall continued after the official, appearing to bump into him as he continued speaking and motioning toward him. His teammates intervened after Hall picked up a second flag for unsportsmanlike conduct, and was ejected from the game.

He said after the game he planned to speak with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell about the incident, suggesting the official said something to him as well.

"For me to walk away from that incident and plead with the ref and beg, like, 'Dude, what do I have to do to get a flag?' Dude just slammed me, nothing happened. I don't understand what you're looking at. If you're going to try to keep this game safe and the way it's supposed to be played, there's no way that particular play shouldn't have drawn a flag,' " Hall said to the Washington Post after the game.

Hall said he and the official were "equally wrong" on the play, and pointed out the TV angle only shows him speaking to the official, and not showing the official speaking back to him.

No word from the league suggested any further investigation into the matter is being, or has been, done.
