Police: Jaguars' Jones-Drew denies alleged battery

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. — Florida authorities say Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has been accused in a complaint of hitting someone at a St. Augustine restaurant, but that police have not brought criminal charges.
St. Augustine police said in a press release Tuesday that the alleged victim filed a misdemeanor battery complaint following a Sunday night altercation at the Conch House Restaurant and Marina. Jones-Drew wasn't taken into police custody.
Police spokesman Mark Samson says the department has spoken with Jones-Drew's attorney, and the player has agreed to speak with detectives. Police say Jones-Drew maintains his innocence.
The Jaguars said in a statement Tuesday they were aware of the situation but had no comment.
The 28-year-old Jones-Drew, who attended UCLA, has played seven seasons with the Jaguars. The two-time Pro Bowler has 1,570 rushes for 7,268 yards and 63 touchdowns, and 292 receptions for 2,559 yards and 11 touchdowns.
