The State Attorney's Office says it won't prosecute Maurice Jones-Drew for an altercation at a bar in St. Augustine, due to a lack of evidence.

Mojo's attorney Hank Coxe expressed relief at the outcome.

"I was pleased, Maurice was pleased. Maurice's words to me this morning were 'good I can get back to playing football and helping underprivileged kids," said Coxe.

The Jaguars running back was under investigation for simple battery. Kasim Howard, a security guard at the Conch House, said Jones-Drew hit him in the face last month.

"Based on the facts and the law the State cannot establish the charge beyond and to the exclusion of all reasonable doubt," wrote Assistant State Attorney Christopher France.

The Jaguars running back spoke to Action Sports 360's Brent Martineau shortly after the announcement.

"Naturally I am pleased with this result and look forward to focusing on football," said Jones-Drew. "My rehab is going well and I'm anxious to join my teammates at the start of training camp."

The incident began during Reggae Sundays at the Conch House over the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
