New Orleans Saints safety Marcus Maye was arrested Monday for aggravated assault with a firearm after allegedly pointing a gun at a vehicle with “several juvenile females” inside.
The 29-year-old was identified as the driver of a black SUV involved in the incident.
The lawyer for Marcus Maye released this statement:
“Marcus vehemently denies the allegation from a motor vehicle incident, and looks forward to defending himself when all the facts come out.”
“Maye was arrested this morning on a warrant that was obtained for his arrest for one count of aggravated assault with a firearm,” police said in a news release.
“Maye was identified as the driver of a black SUV that was involved in an incident in which he is accused of pointing a firearm at another vehicle that was occupied by several juvenile females.”
Maye was booked and released on a $30,000 bond.
This is the second time in less than two years Maye has been arrested. He was booked last February for driving under the influence, DUI/damage to property and leaving the scene of an accident after a car crash in Florida.
Maye just signed a three-year, $22.5 million contract with the Saints after five seasons with the New York Jets.
