BLAKELY, Ga. (AP) -New Orleans Saints defensive end Charles Grant posted $10,000 bond Thursday, a day after he was indicted on an involuntary manslaughter charge stemming from a nightclub fight in February.
Grant appeared before a judge and was presented with the charges and read his rights, Assistant District Attorney Ron Smith said. Arraignment has not been scheduled, and Grant has not yet entered a plea.
The player's lawyer, Ed Tolley, said his client was to return to New Orleans for Saints minicamp at the end of this month.
Grant was stabbed in the neck during the Feb. 3 fight. He was charged by a grand jury that also charged Laquient Macklin with felony murder and killing a fetus in the shooting death of Korynda Reed, 23. Reed, who was pregnant, died after being taken to the Southeast Alabama Medical Center in Dothan.
