Marcus Maye, a safety for the New Orleans Saints, was taken into custody on Thursday after what the authorities described as a “road rage incident.” He was charged with one count of aggravated assault with a firearm.

Maye, 29, was “identified as the driver of a black SUV in which he is accused of pointing a pistol at a vehicle inhabited by multiple young females,” according to a statement from Jefferson Parish Sherriff’s Capt. Jason Rivarde. Maye “vehemently denies the claim from a motor vehicle incident, and looks forwards to defending himself when all the facts come out,” according to a statement supplied to NFL Network by Maye’s attorney, Eric Hessler.
Aggravated battery with a deadly weapon is classified by Louisiana state law as a misdemeanor, which carries a maximum $1,000 fine and a maximum six-month jail sentence. According to Rivarde, Maye was freed from the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center on Thursday after posting a $30,000 bond.
This summer, the Saints signed Maye, a former New York Jets player, to a three-year, $28.5 million deal. Tyrann Mathieu and Maye are expected to be New Orleans’ two starting safeties this season.
