maurice jones drew charged battery punched security guard Maurice Jones Drew charged with battery after fight with security guard   reportMaurice Jones-Drew, a running back for the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars, has been charged with battery after allegedly punching a security guard at a nightclub over the weekend in Florida.

According to TMZ, MJD is accused of hitting a security guard in the face, knocking him out. The incident reportedly took place at the restaurant and lounge that are part of Conch House, a popular marina resort in the St. Augustine area.

The police say the punch was intentional, after MJD’s friend was told by security to stop touching a young woman. The buddy allegedly “slapped” a security guard and that’s when the fight broke out. The guard reportedly got MJD’s friend in a headlock and that’s when MJD allegedly hit the guard in the face with a closed fist.

The cops say the guard’s jaw was “swollen” and when he went to the hospital, doctors found a bone bruise, but no broken bones.
