Reports surfaced early on Tuesday that Jones-Drew would be charged with battery for his involvement in an altercation at a restaurant in St. Augustine, Fla. An initial police report stated that Jones-Drew punched a security guard in the face, knocking him out.
Jones-Drew's agent, Adisa Bakari, states that he was not involved in the fight and left the scene as soon as things escalated:

Bakari goes on to state that St. Augustine police will file a new release clearing Jones-Drew of any charges:
