Cowboys fan pleads not guilty to aggravated assault.
The South Carolina man charged with using a stun gun on other fans during the Dallas Cowboys 2011 regular season opener against the Jets in New York has pleaded not guilty.
An attorney representing the man, a Leroy McKelvey of Moncks Corner South Carolina, entered the plea at the arraignment in state court in Hackensack, New Jersey, on Monday--which, incidentally, marks McKelvey’s 60th birthday.
McKelvey is facing charges of unlawful possession of a weapon and aggravated assault, but didn’t speak during his court appearance Monday.
McKelvey was arrested on Sept. 11 2011, the night of the incident, at MetLife Stadium. According to stadium CEO Mark Lamping, no one was seriously hurt in the incident, but all the same, it caused quite a stir when video of the altercation made its way to YouTube in the day or so after the Cowboys’ 27-24 loss.
