Contrary to a report appearing earlier today in TMZ, Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has not been charged with battery.
Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports that formal charges have not yet been filed against Jones-Drew, and that formal charges may not be filed against Jones-Drew.
“He’s not getting arrested,” an unnamed source told O’Halloran regarding Jones-Drew.
TMZ reported earlier today that Jones-Drew already has been charged with striking a security guard.
Whatever the situation, the Jaguars have issued the perfunctory non-statement statement. “We are aware of the situation regarding Maurice Jones-Drew and are in the process of gathering more information,” the team said. “Due to this being a legal matter, we’ll have no further comment at this time.”
