    St. Augustine police confirmed Tuesday that Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has not been charged with misdemeanor battery after allegedly striking a security guard in the face Sunday.

    The question is if Jones-Drew will face charges after police complete their investigation of the incident.

    Jones-Drew's attorney, Hank Coxe, tells's Ian Rapoport that he expects to know by early next week if the Jaguars star will be charged. Jones-Drew fully is cooperating with the investigation and is scheduled to meet with police soon, likely Friday.

    The original police report alleges that Jones-Drew knocked the security guard out with a blow to the cheek while agent Adisa Bakari has told Rapoport that Jones-Drew departed the Conch House bar and restaurant immediately after the scuffle began and was not involved in any physical altercation.
