Jets linebacker Lorenzo Mauldin faces a civil suit from a man who alleges Mauldin attacked him at a New York City nightclub in April and he’s now facing criminal charges as well.

According to multiple reports, Mauldin turned himself in to the New York City Police Department on Wednesday and has been charged with misdemeanor assault. TMZ Sports reports that Mauldin faces up to a year in jail if convicted of the charge and a court appearance has been set for August on the matter.

Mauldin has been accused of striking Jean Lopez after Lopez spilled champagne on him. Lopez’s lawsuit claims that he suffered multiple facial fractures as a result.

Mauldin’s attorney said earlier this month that another person struck Lopez and that Mauldin is “anxious to be exonerated.”

    What does alcohol, late night partying,
    NFL players and entitlement have in common?

    Stupidity and a career ruined. Stay home stupid and throw your own party. They will come….

    The Jets should change their team name to The Tanks.

    He smashed the guys face for spilling a drink on him?
    What a moron.
    I’m a Jets fan and I hope he gets convicted.

    He said “anxious” but he probably meant “eager.”

    Anxious is how Jets fans feel about the coming season. It’s not a good thing.
