Jets linebacker Lorenzo Mauldin showed up to a Manhattan court on Wednesday for his alleged assault of a Queens man, but the case has been delayed because prosecution wasn't ready to file paper work, according to multiple reports.
Mauldin had turned himself in to authorities in late June for his alleged role in the nightclub attack that took place on April 2. The New York Post reported on June 21 that Mauldin had been charged with misdemeanor assault, which carries a maximum sentence of year in jail.
The victim in the case has accused Mauldin of punching him in the face twice, leading to swelling near his eye.
After the court appearance in the morning, Mauldin returned to Jets practice. Mauldin, who is also being sued in civil court, was not initially arrested or charged after the incident.
