Maurice Jones-Drew avoids battery charges

USA TODAY Sports

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew will not be charged with misdemeanor assault, according to a report by Vic Micolucci of WJXT in Jacksonville.

The state attorneys office has decided against pursuing charges against the Jaguars running back, which means outside of a potential civil trial, but Jones-Drew can now move on without having to deal with the legal battle during the offseason. This does not necessarily mean there was an out-of-court settlement on the case, it means the state attorney's office didn't feel there was enough evidence to pursue a charge.

Jones-Drew was accused of punching a security guard at The Conch House restaurant after the security guard allegedly got Jones-Drew's friend in a headlock. Jones-Drew left the scene prior to law enforcement arriving and was not immediately charged with misdemeanor battery.
