Lawyer for security guard says video proves MJD is guilty

Conflicting statements from the St. Augustine Police Department notwithstanding, the question of whether Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew will face charges for allegedly punching a security guard depends on the quality of the evidence supporting that conclusion.

The lawyer for the security claims that the evidence is clear.

“The videos, in addition to eyewitness accounts, unequivocally prove Jones-Drew attacked the security officer without provocation,” lawyer Greg Anderson said in a statement, via Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Anderson also said that Jones-Drew’s “conduct was deplorable and unbecoming a professional athlete.”

Jones-Drew reportedly will meet with police on Friday, with a decision on whether he’ll face criminal charges coming next week.  Regardless of whether he’s prosecuted criminally, it’s safe to say that Anderson will be filing a civil lawsuit against the short man with the deep pockets.

    Little man syndrome.

    This is why the Steelers never drafted him. Why always see these qualities in players and pass on them. We never made a mistake.

    Gonna be a nice little payday for Mr. Security Guard to make this one go away…

    Mjd setting himself up beautifully for free agency.

  6. thestrategyexpert says: May 30, 2013 12:49 PM

    What did this guy do, ask him for an autograph without having a $20 bill properly presented?

    No sign for you, fist to face instead you non-celebrity creature, I’m MJD on MGD and you better watch out if you waste my time.

    I am NOT a role model, how much clearer can I make it?

    If they allowed camera’s in the ladies room at the club, Ben Roth wouldn’t even be in the NFL anymore. He was smart enough to stay off camera with his antics.

  8. nyg201 says: May 30, 2013 12:55 PM

    Pshhh… the weak curtain wishes they drafted MJD. They haven’t had a RB since Jerome Bettis.

    The Steelers were built on pounding the rock right down the middle all game long.

    Now, not so much. The Steelers are average at best these days.

    The ketchup team is all hype living off their past success.

  9. maestro3k says: May 30, 2013 12:59 PM

    If this dude wins, I hope MJD gives him all pennies for his settlement!!!

    Conduct unbecoming a professional athlete? That’s a pretty low bar.

  11. hedleykow says: May 30, 2013 1:01 PM

    Right now MJD is home deciding whether to go with the OJ excuse about punching a glass table.

  12. tycobbfromfangraphs says: May 30, 2013 1:02 PM

    Steelers didnt draft Plexico and Ohio state trash?

    He is trash – always has been. A future ESPN hire for sure.

    Anderson also said that Jones-Drew’s “conduct was deplorable and unbecoming a professional athlete.”

    Conduct unbecoming a Profesional Athlete?
    How low can THAT standard be set?

  16. johnnyjagfan says: May 30, 2013 1:22 PM

    Kind of like watching game film, huh Maurice? Tape don’t lie. If you made statements at the police station that you didn’t do anything and then are on camera punching a dude from behind, then you’ve made false statements. Should have just pleaded the 5th, bro. If that video shows you sucker punching a guy from behind, You’ve lost a lot of respect from your fans and your soapbox for your penchant for slamming guys that screw up.

  17. samonelastains says: May 30, 2013 1:25 PM

    The stellers don’t make mistakes there QB is a rapist, need I say more. But paying the guy in pennies thats hilarious. Im going to start doing that with all my debtors.

  18. therillest says: May 30, 2013 1:36 PM

    Im going to say it because no one else in this city will! MJD is a little bee ah ich. Great player but a straight up Keyshawn Johnson 2.0

    He has earned whatever comes to him from this….

    Recent history: Steelers drafted Santonio Holmes. Sure, the Steelers NEVER “made a mistake”.

    Early history: Drafted and then CUT Johnny Unitas (you know, “Golden Arm”, HOF, etc.) in 1955.

    Better check that arrogance.

  20. mythaimyke says: May 30, 2013 1:57 PM

    Another Pro athlete that thinks he is above the law! Because of money!!!! LOCK him up! Put him where he belongs, PRISON!

  21. thegreatgabbert says: May 30, 2013 2:00 PM

    Well, he didn’t lead with his helmet at least.

  22. ehill3420 says: May 30, 2013 2:07 PM

    What in the world is “…conduct unbecoming a professional athlete” and how does it translate into everyday society? Are there guidelines professional athletes follow that non-athletes don’t follow? Why is he, or any professional athlete, expected to act differently than the average citizen? I guess it would be o.k. if Joe SixPack attacked the officer. Now I have a great defense when I get arrested.

  23. tvguy22 says: May 30, 2013 2:09 PM

    Ahh, the professional athlete and his crew at the club.

  24. r8rsfan says: May 30, 2013 2:13 PM

    That’s Stanford Routt being posterized in that pic. Just in case you were wondering.

  25. westcoastraider says: May 30, 2013 2:15 PM

    I think one obvious thing people seem to forget about “celebrities” ( hate that term BTW) is that they are human people, and the same stuff that pisses off regular dudes like you and me probably pisses them off too, I’m sure MJD didn’t drop dude just to drop him, dude probably provoked him and MJD retaliated.. Can’t knock dude for being human…

  26. 808raiderinparadise says: May 30, 2013 2:28 PM

    TEBOW TEBOW TEBOW TEBOW !!!

  27. northstarnic says: May 30, 2013 2:36 PM

    Actually, his conduct is totally becoming, or at least typical of, a professional athlete. It’s just not becoming of a reasonable human.

  28. chawk12thman says: May 30, 2013 2:42 PM

    Lets see the video…..of course the lawyer says it clearly shows his guilt……..

  29. larrydavid7000 says: May 30, 2013 2:47 PM

    Give him LIFE. Like the movie.

  30. ilovefoolsball says: May 30, 2013 2:57 PM

    Jacksonville sucks.

    “Anderson also said that Jones-Drew’s “conduct was deplorable and unbecoming a professional athlete.” ”

    Really? Wow, that is saying a lot given that Chris Cook is on my Vikes, and Fred Smoot and Bryant McKinnie used to be!!!!

  32. drgreenstreak says: May 30, 2013 3:27 PM

    8 games, genius.

  33. thegreatgabbert says: May 30, 2013 3:38 PM

    Looks bad for Mo, the knockout blow was described as a “short” uppercut.

  34. jagsfanugh says: May 30, 2013 3:48 PM

    He was also..hearsay..dancing/grinding with a chick that wasn’t his wife. Little fat guy is supposed to be in South Florida training but the fatty was getting drunk and acting a fool. He is showing that he might be just washed up.

  35. moeman79 says: May 30, 2013 4:07 PM

    I love the part “he will meet with police Friday to see if their are any criminal charges”. If that was me or you we would be in jail awaiting to see if we face charges.

  36. peanutele24 says: May 30, 2013 4:25 PM

    I doubt this is true. I’m guessing the film is a lil short. HA!

    If I had used this statement “against the short man with the deep pockets” describing one of the employees of this site, my post would have been taken down in a heart beat. Shoot, probably still will !!

    Stay tuned !!!!

  39. barneysbullet says: May 30, 2013 6:08 PM

    Hey MJD, I bet Jay Cutler’s too classy to cut you down for this, even though you bashed him after that NFC championship game.

    This is so much worse… What a tool. Grow up fatty.

  40. brocattosbasement says: May 30, 2013 6:19 PM

    Not like security guards ever provoke anything…just sayin’

  42. BigVinnyInJax says: May 30, 2013 7:15 PM

    I’ll just be so glad when the 2013 season is over and this guy is unemployed. A 30 year old locker room poison prima-donna who has now had two brushes with the law. Yeah, he’s going to really generate interest on the FA market.

  43. tackledummy1505 says: May 31, 2013 8:52 AM

    This just doesn’t seem like the man I met while I was station in Jacksonville. Not saying he didn’t do it, but before he became great he was a gentleman and kind to those around him. Just couldn’t see him lashing out for no reason

  44. rmzthefirst says: May 31, 2013 3:30 PM

    Ha, I just figured out that the security guy that he punched is an instructor at my 12yr old son’s MMA gym…! I knew that name Kasim sounded familiar…!:blink:

    I’d like to see them lace up the gloves in the ring where you can’t sucker punch… I’d put my money on Kasim..:blush:
