NY Giants owner’s nephew faces Conn. arraignment

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) – The 22-year-old nephew of
New York Giants owner John Mara is facing arraignment on charges he hit a
man in the head with a bottle during a New Year's Eve party.

The nephew, also named John Mara, is scheduled to
appear Tuesday in Bridgeport Superior Court. His attorney, William Dow
III, said Mara will plead not guilty to first-degree assault and breach
of peace charges.

Police say a witness identified Mara as the person
who committed the assault. Mara, who lives in Mount Kisko, N.Y., was
arrested in February.

An arrest affidavit says the victim, Philip Blackman, suffered life-threatening injuries that required immediate surgery.

First-degree assault carries a sentence of 1 to 20 years in prison.
