Weapons were also found in Maroney’s vehicle, but he does have a conceal carry permit, and prosecutors say no Missouri gun laws were violated.If convicted, the five each face up to one year in prison, and a $1,000 fine or probation.
Maroney is a product of Normandy High School. He was drafted 21st overall by the New England Patriots in 2006.
