Late last week, it was reported that a decision about whether or not to charge Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew with battery for a Memorial Day weekend incident with a security guard would come sometime next week.
A key part of that report and, presumably, the ultimate decision was a meeting between Jones-Drew and St. Augustine police that was supposed to happen last Friday. It never happened, however, and Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports that no meeting has been scheduled at this point.
Hank Coxe, an attorney representing Jones-Drew, told O’Halloran that the meeting is “affected by lots of different schedules so [a meeting is] not set yet.”
Lawyers for the security guard and the restaurant that employs him both say that video of the incident and eyewitness accounts point to Jones-Drew punching the security guard before exiting the scene. Coxe and Jones-Drew’s agent both deny that their client was involved in any altercation and that he left the scene at the request of those trying to calm down the situation.
