The New York Giants suspended safety Kam Moore on Monday amid charges he punched a woman, stepped on her neck and rendered her unconscious.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — The New York Giants suspended safety Kam Moore on Monday amid charges he punched a woman, stepped on her neck and rendered her unconscious.
The alleged incident took place last Thursday. Moore appeared in Union County Superior Court on Monday to face charges of third-degree aggravated assault.
“New York Giants safety Kamrin Moore was arrested over the weekend in Linden, New Jersey, for an alleged domestic violence-related incident,” the team said in a statement. “Moore has been suspended by the team pending further investigation.”
The 22-year-old Moore played in two games as a rookie last year for New York. Moore joined the Giants after being cut by New Orleans. He was not drafted out of Boston College in 2018 and has been expected to compete for a backup roster spot and play special teams if he makes the Giants.
Under the NFL’s personal conduct policy, Moore could be subject to a six-game suspension for a first-time offense.
