Before I begin, shout out to TMZ for the heads up on the story.
Anyway, one of the ONLY players that actually have a name on the Jacksonville Jaguars, running back Maurice Jones-Drew (aka MJD), has been arrested for battery.
#UPDATE (May 28, 2013 8:21pm) The Ft. Lauderdale police spokesmen, along with Jones-Drew’s agent, have stated that charges have NOT been pressed on Jones-Drew at this time.
Here is how it went down. Jones-Drew was at “Reggae Sundays” at the Conch House in St. Augustine, Florida. The security guard allegedly told one of MJD’s friends to stop touching a female, and a fight broke out. MJD then proceeded to allegedly punch the security guard in the cheek with a closed fist, knocked the guard out. Seems like he just gave a new meaning to “one hitter quitter”.
Doctors later found out that the security guard had contusions and a bruised jaw bone, but nothing was broken.
What is in store for the running back tho? After a season riddled with injuries, and a new GM, will MJD survive his latest troubles and stay on the roster? Share your thoughts!
