Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is not facing battery charges and is only being investigated by the St. Augustine police regarding a Sunday incident, according to USA Today and ESPN

The paper spoke with Maurice Jones-Drew agent, Adisa Bakari, via e-mail. ESPN NFL reporter Adam Shefter also provided an update on the matter from Jones-Drew's agent.

"Maurice was there and was not involved. As soon as an altercation broke out, Maurice exited the premises. He was not questioned by police immediately after nor later that day," Bakari told ESPN.

Earlier Tuesday, the Florida Times-Union in Jacksonville reported that Jones-Drew had been charged with misdemeanor battery connected with an altercation at a St. Augustine restaurant Sunday night.

The newspaper reported that the St. Augustine Police Department said Jones-Drew struck a security guard on the left cheek, “knocking him out,” during an altercation at the Conch House Restaurant and Marina. The police said Jones-Drew left the scene before they arrived.

The security guard was hospitalized after the attack. Doctors found a bone bruise, but no broken bones.
