Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has been clamoring for a long-term contract extension for a while now, but this latest news won’t help his cause. According to TMZ, MJD has been charged with battery after allegedly knocking out a security guard.
The report implies Jones-Drew was breaking up an altercation involving his friend and a security guard. Let’s see if that matters as this whole ordeal unfolds.
The incident went down during “Reggae Sundays” at the Conch House restaurant on May 26.
According to the police report, witnesses say … MJD’s buddy was told by security to stop touching a young female. The buddy allegedly “slapped” a security guard on his chest … and a melee ensued.
One of the security guards reportedly put MJD’s friend in a headlock to stop the fight … and that’s when MJD stepped in and clocked the guard.
After the incident, the security guard spoke with police — and cops noted that the guy’s jaw was “swollen a great deal and had a large lump on his jaw bone.”
