Moore, 22, was arrested over the weekend and has been charged with third-degree aggravated assault for knocking an unidentified woman unconscious and stepping on her neck after a dispute, according to a document obtained by NJ.com from the Union County (N.J.) Prosecutor’s Office. The altercation took place outside of Moore’s home, according to a report from the Linden Police Department.
Moore’s agent, Eugene Lee, released a statement Monday afternoon disputing the allegations, without offering any additional details.
“We remain confident that when the truth is revealed, Mr. Moore will be exonerated and vindicated completely of these baseless charges,” Lee said in a release.

The Saints took Moore in the sixth round (189th overall) of the 2018 NFL Draft out of Boston College, but he played limited snaps last season before being released and picked up by the Giants.
The Giants missed the playoffs last season, finishing last in the NFC East with a 5-11 record.
They parted with some impactful players this offseason, including star wideout Odell Beckham Jr. and three-time Pro Bowl safety Landon Collins.
