 MANSFIELD, Mass. (AP) -New England Patriots defensive back Willie Andrews is being held without bail after allegedly pointing a handgun at his girlfriend's head.
A spokesman for the Bristol County district attorney said Andrews was arrested Monday morning after the alleged incident, which occurred when Andrews returned home at about 1 a.m. and an argument began between him and his girlfriend.
Gregg Miliote said Andrews, a backup since being drafted by the Patriots in 2006, was charged with illegal possession of a large capacity firearm and assault with a dangerous weapon.
He said Andrews is being held without bail pending the results of a dangerousness hearing Thursday.
The Patriots said they were aware of the report but would have no further comment.
In February, Andrews was arrested on a marijuana possession charge. In May, he admitted in court that there was enough evidence to convict him at trial but did not plead guilty.
