All charges dropped against nephew of Giants owner

Mara

When a relative of an NFL owner is arrested, it’s going to make news.

When those charges are dropped and that relative’s name is cleared, it should as well.

John V. Mara, the nephew of Giants co-owner John Mara, saw the assault charges against him dropped when State’s Attorney John Smriga told a judge police arrested the wrong man.

According to Daniel Tepfer of the Connecticut Post, Mara left the courthouse with his parents after the hearing.

The younger Mara had turned himself in in February, after a two-month investigation into an incident at a New Year’s Eve party which left a man with life-threatening injuries after he was hit in the head with a bottle.

    They should arrest him cause his uncle is 0-4

    I doubt the Mara’s used their status to leverage this clearing.

    Now I’m going to enjoy a delicious cheeseburger from McDonald’s.

    The son of the Giant’s owner was able to get his name cleared? Shocking.

    Why of course the owner not only has connections with God Dell he also has leverage with the po po…ah the name Mara is becoming more associated with shady results…

    Well to be fair I’m sure he just broke the “spirit” of the law and not the actual law itself. On a side note maybe A. Hernandez should seek to employ Mr. Maras services…

    “shocker!! I’m literally stunned by this news… NOT!”

    The time has come to stop using this expression. It wasn’t funny or useful twenty years ago and certainly hasn’t aged well. I would hope that all PFT posters will join me in this sentiment and voluntarily refrain from using the “Not!” idiom, before drastic and punitive measures need to be taken.

    Amazing what a couple of season tickets will get you these days…

    Aww he dug his little silver spoon out, banged it around on his little high chair, then little Mara got his way.

    Another example of Mara throwing his weight around – just ask the Redskins and Cowboys about the Mara driven cap penalties!

    Is his cousin Rooney Mara, the actress?

    Where did “Not!” start from? Was it a Jim Carey movie?

    Of course they arrested the wrong man John John would never do such a terrible thing.

    Absolutely hate the Not expression. I’m behind your movement 100%.

    All charges were dropped a moment after Baby John Mara threatened to convene the Connecticut Competition Committee and order the state’s salary cap cut by 25% and suspend eight attorneys from the AG’s office.
