FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) _ The 22-year-old nephew of New York Giants owner John Mara has been charged with felony assault in Connecticut for allegedly hitting a person in the head with a bottle during a New Year’s Eve party near Fairfield University.

The nephew, also named John Mara, was arrested by Fairfield police Friday and posted $150,000 bail. The Mount Kisco, N.Y., resident is to be arraigned March 8 in Bridgeport Superior Court.

Police say the victim suffered life-threatening injuries that required immediate surgery. The victim hasn’t been identified.

Mara’s lawyer, William Dow, told The Associated Press Monday that Mara will plead not guilty. A message seeking comment was left at a phone listing for a John Mara in Mount Kisco.

A Fairfield University spokeswoman says Mara is a senior at the Jesuit school.
