Saints CB Marshon Lattimore arrested after allegedly having loaded, stolen gun
New Orleans Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore was arrested Thursday night in Cleveland on suspicion of possessing a stolen gun, according to Cleveland.com.
Lattimore was booked around 10:30 p.m. in his hometown, along with three other men at the same time, per the report. Lattimore was booked into the Cuyahoga County Jail and later charged with receiving stolen property, a fourth-degree felony.
Two other passengers were arrested for having weapons while under disability, while the driver was arrested for improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle and issued a citation for driving without working taillights.
Lattimore's attorney issued a statement prior to Lattimore being charged.
"Mr. Lattimore, a proud Cleveland native with no prior criminal record or history, is fully cooperating with law enforcement's investigation of this matter," said Marcus Sidoti of Friedman, Gilbert of Gerhardstein, who represents Lattimore, in a statement to NFL Media. "He was a passenger in a vehicle that was stopped by police and was arrested without incident and was not formally charged. We believe that this was a misunderstanding and that this will become even clearer as new information becomes available and is shared with the authorities."
Selected in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, Lattimore, 24, has starred as New Orleans' starting cornerback for the last four seasons, starting 57 of his games played. He was named AP Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2017 and has made the Pro Bowl three times, most recently this past season. Lattimore is entering the final year of his rookie deal and is set to earn $10.244 million in 2021. 토토
