Saints defensive end Charles Grant was one of seven men indicted on a charge of involuntary manslaughter, stemming from a February altercation outside of a night club in Blakely, Ga., according to the Early County News.
Early County officials could not be reached for comment. Neither could Grant or his attorney. The Saints said they were aware of the development but had no comment.
According to the report, the men were all charged because of their involvement in a fight that resulted in the death of Korynda Reed, 23, an innocent bystander who was hit by a stray bullet. Grant also received misdemeanor fighting charges.
Back in February, Capt. Will Caudill from the Early County Sheriff’s Office, said that Grant was not considered an instigator or a willing participant in the fight. According to the Early County News report, Woodrow Gray was indicted on a charge of aggravated assault for attacking Grant. Gray was also one of the men charged with involuntary manslaughter.
