The 24-year-old had flagged down a cab outside a Miami nightclub at around 4:30 a.m.  When the cab pulled up to Amaya, he reportedly asked the driver, Jonathon Vunge, if he would to take him to a destination beyond the outskirts of the regular route. Amaya allegedly handed Vunge a $100 bill for his trouble and the driver agreed to take him.

Vunge then told police investigators that as they drove, Amaya suddenly became “aggressive” and he felt threatened by his behavior so he returned the player back to the spot where he had picked him up.

According to the 44-year-old driver, Amaya then “leaned forward and wrapped his hands around his neck and started choking him.”

When police were called to the scene, Amaya was still inside the car and Vunge was frantically telling them that the NFL player had tried to kill him.

Vunge was not injured and had no visible scars, but police took Amaya in to custody where he is being held on a $1,500 bond.

Amaya is in his third season with the NFL and in his second with the Dolphins. Pending the court case, Amaya could be facing jail time and/or suspension from his NFL team.
