NFL safety Marcus Maye has seen his aggravated assault charges dropped by a Louisiana district attorney, according to reports.
Maye, 30, was arrested last September after a group of teenage girls claimed the New Orleans Saints star pointed a gun at them in a road rage incident.

Jefferson Parish District Attorney Paul Connick Jr. has refused to prosecute Maye due to “insufficient evidence,” according to a statement obtained by an NBC affiliate in New Orleans.
The NFL player was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a firearm after the incident that occurred on August 29.
He was then released from the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center after posting $30,000 bond.
“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, claimed at the time.
The former Florida standout started in all 10 games he played for the Saints in the 2022 NFL season.
He moved to New Orleans after signing a three-year, $28.5million contract with the team in free agency last summer.
