Saints’ Maye arrested in alleged road rage case

New Orleans Saints safety Marcus Maye was arrested Thursday by the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office after its investigation into an alleged road rage incident on Monday.

Maye was arrested on one count of aggravated assault with a firearm after he was “accused of pointing a firearm at another vehicle that was occupied by several juvenile females,” the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

“Marcus vehemently denies the allegation from a motor vehicle incident, and looks forward to defending himself when all the facts come out,” Maye’s attorney, Eric Hessler, told NFL Network.

Maye was booked at the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center and released Thursday on $30,000 bond.

Maye joined the Saints in March, signing a three-year, $28.5 million contract as a free agent after spending five seasons with the New York Jets.
