NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Saints linebacker Junior Galette has been named in a second police report a week after Kenner police arrested him on suspicion of domestic violence.

According to the report, Galette's cousin, Terrance Banks, was pulled over Jan. 12 at about 5 a.m. for driving a Mercedes-Benz with tinted windows. The car belongs to Galette.

During the traffic stop, the report said police discovered marijuana in the car and another prescription drug. Banks and two other passengers were arrested.

Once at the jail, Banks was strip searched and more marijuana was found hidden on his body.

Galette was called to come to the scene to pick up his vehicle, which is why his name is listed in the report. One week before the traffic stop, on Jan. 5, |Galette and Banks were arrested at his Kenner home after a woman claimed the two jumped her.

A police report from that incident said the woman wanted Galette to give her cab fare and to return her cell phone. When he wouldn't, she refused to leave. Banks told police he, not Galette, was the one who grabbed the woman picked her up and placed her outside the residence, which is when she called 911.

Responding officers found visible injuries on the woman including a torn ear lobe.

Both Galette and Banks have been charged with one count of simple battery each for that incident.
