Lorenzo Mauldin the 6-foot-4 and 259 pound linebacker could be in some deep trouble. According to the New York Post, Mauldin allegedly battered victim Jean Lopez when he spilled Champagne on him at the Highline Ballroom, according to sources and the lawsuit Lopez filed against the Jet, another man and others over the pummeling.
Lopez, 22, suffered “multiple maxillofacial fractures” and needed “numerous plates” installed to repair the damage, his lawyer said Sunday.
“It was not a fight, it was an attack,” his lawyer Glenn Race said.
“He had surgery, he still has numbness on the affected side in his mouth area and traveling up to his ear. It’s a bad injury.”
The Jets have been in the news a lot this off-season, so this does not help matters.
