Maurice Jones-Drew will face lawsuit over bar incident


Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew will not be criminally charged after he was accused of punching a bar security guard. But he will be sued in civil court.

Patrick Canan, the attorney for security guard Kasim Howard, told the Florida Times-Union he will sue Jones-Drew.

If the state of Florida won’t attempt to seek justice, we will,” Canan said.

Video of the incident was inconclusive, and prosecutors did not believe they could prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Jones-Drew assaulted Howard. Canan still believes that the preponderance of the evidence will show that his client was injured by Jones-Drew.
