On Tuesday the New England Patriots announced the release of defensive back Willie Andrews of Longview.
Andrews was arrested Monday morning after allegedly pointing a gun at his girlfriend's head. Police say he is charged with illegal possession of a large capacity firearm and assault with a dangerous weapon. Andrews is being held without bail in a Massachusetts jail pending a dangerousness hearing on Thursday.
Monday's arrest was the second for the former Lobo in less than six months. In February, just two days after the Super Bowl, Andrews was arrested on a marijuana possession charge. In May, he admitted in court that there was enough evidence to convict him at trial but did not plead guilty.
