New Orleans Saints star security Marcus May was arrested Thursday morning.
Mei was arrested in connection with the assault with a firearm.
He was eventually sent to prison but released on a $30K bond.
Mai's lawyer, Eric Hesler, issued a statement before the report
came to light, claiming that his client was innocent.
"Marcus vehemently denies the allegation of a motor vehicle incident
and stands ready to defend himself when all facts emerge,"
the statement said. The Saints signed Mei to a 3-year deal this season
after spending the past five seasons with the New York Jets.
