No charges filed for Jones-Drew
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew will not be charged in connection with an alleged bar fight last month.
Jones-Drew had been accused of punching a bouncer at a restaurant/bar in St. Augustine over Memorial Day weekend.
The State Attorney's Office filed an ``announcement of no information'' Tuesday, saying ``based on the facts and the law, the state cannot establish the charge beyond and to the exclusion of all reasonable doubt.''
Jones-Drew declined to answer questions about the incident at a news conference this month. His agent insisted his client was not involved in an altercation with a bouncer at the Conch House on May 26. The bouncer's attorney, meanwhile, called it an ``unprovoked attack.''
Jones-Drew says he is pleased with the result and looks ``forward to focusing on football.''
