MIAMI (AP) -Jacksonville Jaguars offensive tackle Stockar McDougle was charged with battery after he pushed a store owner and his employee, authorities said Monday.
McDougle was arrested Friday and charged with battery on a person 65 and older, a felony, and touch-strike battery, a misdemeanor, after he went to a landscaping company to pay off a debt, according to a Broward Sheriff's Office report.
McDougle became angry when owner Quilone Mitchell said he owed $2,229.48 and not $1,200 because of interest, the report said.
As McDougle was leaving the store, he took the original receipt off a clerk's desk. When she reached for it, McDougle pushed her, causing her to fall against the wall, authorities said.
Mitchell tried to grab the receipt, but McDougle pushed him against the counter. Mitchell told authorities he later struck McDougle's car with a shovel because he thought McDougle was trying to run him over, the report said.
Detectives did not find any visible injuries on Mitchell and the clerk, according to the report.
McDougle, who lives in Parkland, bonded out of jail Friday night. He is out for the season with an Achilles tendon injury and does not travel with the team. It was not known if he had an attorney. A telephone listing for McDougle could not be found.
Jacksonville has had eight other players arrested since January 2006. Four of the arrests involved alcohol, two were for drug possession and two were for gun charges.
Last month coach Jack Del Rio vowed stiffer punishments, including fines and suspensions, for any other Jaguars who got in trouble.
The Jaguars declined to comment on McDougle's arrest.
McDougle, a first-round draft pick by Detroit in 2000, played 11 games for the Jaguars last season - primarily on special teams. He spent his first five seasons with the Lions, then the 2005 campaign in Miami.
