BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - Police in Connecticut say a witness identified the 22-year-old nephew of New York Giants owner John Mara as the person who hit a man in the head with a bottle during a New Year's Eve party.
The nephew, also named John Mara, was arrested by Fairfield police last week and posted $150,000 bail. The Mount Kisco, N.Y., resident is scheduled to be arraigned on first-degree assault and breach of peace charges on March 8 in Bridgeport Superior Court.
An arrest affidavit says the victim, Philip Blackman, suffered life-threatening injuries that required immediate surgery. It says a witness identified Mara as the person who hit Blackman.
Mara's lawyer, William Dow III, said Mara will plead not guilty and he's confident a jury will find him not guilty.
