Bad news for this Giant and, in turn, for the NFL (however, I must admit that I am suspect of the situation).  From a LOCAL source available on "The REAL Feed":

Newsday.com: New York Giants (14.01.2009 13:39)
Several months after he was charged with raping a South Carolina woman, former NFL running back David Meggett was in jail Wednesday on allegations of another sexual assault.
