The Giants announced the suspension of S Kam Moore on Monday following his role in an alleged domestic violence-related incident last Thursday.
According to NJ.com, Moore was arrested and charged with third-degree aggravated assault after allegedly punching a woman and knocking her out unconscious by stepping on her neck and applying pressure.
The woman, who is Moore's girlfriend, said that she was arguing with Moore and pushed him which caused his reaction, the report said. She walked into the police department on Saturday to file her complaint, as police weren't called to the scene on Thursday night.
"We remain confident that when the truth is revealed, Mr. Moore will be exonerated and vindicated completely of these baseless charges," MBK Sports President and Agent Eugene Lee wrote in an official release shared by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Moore, 22, won't be competing for a roster spot when camp kicks off next week. The sixth-rounder out of Boston College spent time with the Saints last season, played just 10 snaps in two games during his rookie campaign. He was later released by New Orleans, and signed with the Giants.
With GM Dave Gettleman looking to create a new culture in the locker room, this isn't a good look for the Giants, which could lead to Moore's release.
