Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. was arrested Tuesday night in St. Petersburg on charges of simple battery and mischief, according to police records.
Fowler 22, was arrested by St. Petersburg police at 9:02 PM Tuesday night and was released at 1:43 AM on bonds of $650 dollars. 

According to the police report, Fowler struck a man and then stomped on his prescription glasses after a brief verbal confrontation. The report states the man did not claim to sustain any injuries from the confrontation. 

According to reports obtained by the Tampa Bay Times, Fowler got out of his car to confront the man after he made a comment about Fowler’s driving. He then “”took the victim’s grocery bag, with recently purchased liquor, and threw it in a lake.”

The Jaguars released an official statement Wednesday regarding the matter 

“The Jaguars are aware of the situation involving defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. and are currently gathering more information,” the Jaguars said in a statement. “The team has been in communication with Dante. No further comment will be made at this time.”
