NORTH BABYLON - A former high school football star and four of his friends faced a judge today after being accused in a home invasion.

The five young men are accused of breaking into a home on Leigh Street in Huntington on Tuesday. Police say at least two of the men were armed with loaded handguns and threatened the homeowners.

Among the men is former North Babylon High School running back Jason Gwaltney. His attorney says the 25-year-old was driving the car and had no idea what his passengers were up to.

Gwaltney is being held on $75,000 bail and will be back in court at the end of February.
