Feb. 26 (UPI) -- John Mara, who holds the same name as his uncle, New York Giants owner John Mara, turned himself into police on charges that he nearly killed a partygoer by hitting him over the head with a bottle.

According to the Connecticut Post, the 22-year-old Fairfield University student and resident of Mount Kisco, N.Y., attended a New Year's Eve party in Fairfield, Conn., where the alleged assault took place. After a two-month investigation, police charged Mara with first-degree assault and second-degree breach of peace.

“He intends to address the charges in court,” Mara's lawyer, William Dow, told The Journal News. “We’re confident that a jury will find him not guilty.”

Out on $150,000 bond, Mara is due in court March 8.

A Giants rep said the team wouldn't comment on the incident.
