Maurice Jones-Drew has been arrested and, just to get this out of the way, no: we don’t know how this will affect his fantasy football draft status.
According to the police report obtained by TMZ, the Jaguars running back stands accused of hitting a security guard at the Conch House in St. Augustine, Florida… and knocking him unconscious in the process.
The altercation took place on Sunday after MJD defended a friend who was told to stop touching a female patron.
After the friend took exception to this advice and slapped the guard, a full-on brawl ensued, during which MJD stepped in and slugged a guard who has his pal in a headlock.
The victim’s jaw was “”swollen a great deal and had a large lump on his jaw bone,” according to police at the scene, while the guard was found to have bruises and contusions (but no broken bones) upon being hospitalized.
No word yet from Jones-Drew or anyone in his camp.
UPDATE: Police now admit they screwed up and MJD has not yet been charged with any crime.
