Jaguars defender Dante Fowler Jr arrested on battery, mischief charges

St. Petersburg police said in a news release that Fowler 22 was arrested Tuesday after getting into a confrontation with a man who made a comment about his driving

Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Dante Fowler was arrested on Tuesday night following an altercation with another man that began after the man commented on Fowler's driving. On Tuesday night, he was arrested on multiple charges in his native St. Petersburg, Florida. After a brief argument, Fowler then struck the man, stomped on his prescription glasses and then took the man's grocery bag, which included liquor, and tossed it in a lake, the report said.

Since leaving the Florida program, former Gator defender Dante Fowler Jr. just can't seem to get a break.

The Jaguars released a statement about the incident Wednesday, according to ESPN.com.

The Jaguars issued a statement Wednesday morning: "The Jaguars are aware of the situation involving defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. and are now gathering more information". He missed the entire 2015 season due to a torn ACL before finally making his National Football League debut in 2016.

Fowler is the first Jaguars player to be arrested since linebacker Dan Skuta last summer in Orlando, but was not charged. This arrest comes exactly one week before Fowler, and his teammates, are scheduled to report for training camp. He was able to recover in time for the start of the 2016 season and finished the year with 32 combined tackles and 4.0 sacks.
