Ex-Patriots running back Laurence Maroney has been arrested on weapons possession charges.
Maroney’s publicist, Jane Higgins, had this to say about the arrest:
“He holds a permit to carry a concealed weapon,” Higgins said in a statement. “He was not arrested for any drugs nor was he involved in a high-speed chase. He was released without being charged with any offense and we do not anticipate he will be charged with any criminal offense.”
However, a wrinkle in the story is that police spokeswoman Erica Van Ross said one of the men had a valid concealed weapon permit, but that state law prohibits possessing a gun while under the influence of drugs. She declined to elaborate.
I guess we’ll have to wait and see what the future holds for Mr. Maroney.
