Former Brown Ausar Walcott pleads not guilty to attempted murder
Former Browns linebacker Ausar Walcott pleaded not guilty to three criminal charges on Thursday, including one count of attempted murder.
Walcott is also facing charges of aggravated assault and endangering an injured victim.
The charges stem from a June 23 incident in which Walcott allegedly punched a man outside a gentlemen's club in Passaic, N.J. The victim is currently in a medically induced coma at a New York hospital.
Walcott turned himself in to authorities on Tuesday and he's currently being held on a $500,000 bond. The 23-year-old is being represented by a public defender while he searches for an attorney.
Walcott spent just over one month as a linebacker for the Browns. Cleveland signed the rookie out of Virginia on May 13 and then released him on Wednesday after news of the attempted murder charge became public.
