Man pleads not guilty in shooting of Jaguars' Collier

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A man charged in the shooting of Jacksonville Jaguars offensive lineman Richard Collier is pleading not guilty at his arraignment.

Tyrone Romaro Hartsfield stood silently as public defender Ann Finnell pleaded not guilty Monday to charges of attempted murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The 32-year-old Hartsfield is charged with shooting Collier 14 times on Sept. 2. Collier is paralyzed from the waist down and his left leg had to be amputated as a result of the shooting.

Hartsfield is being held without bond. A judge set another hearing for Dec. 1.

Police believe Hartsfield was retaliating against Collier for an earlier altercation.
