Dante Fowler arrested for simple battery and criminal mischief

Dante Fowler arrested for simple battery and criminal mischief

According to the police report, after the man said something about Fowler's driving, Fowler got out of his vehicle, engaged in words with the other man and then "hit the man, knocked his glasses off and stepped on them".

Police said the victim was not injured.

According to NFL.com, Fowler was born in St. Petersburg and went to Lakewood High School.

The Jaguars released a statement Wednesday morning addressing the weird incident. He posted a $650 bond and was released at 1:43 a.m. Wednesday. He then stepped on them, took the victim's grocery bag and threw it in the lake. He was reportedly arrested on charges of simple battery and mischief.

Everyone breaks an occasional traffic law, but Jaguars defensive end Dante Fowler appears to be doing more than his fair share of unsafe driving. "No further comment will be made at this time". He missed the entire 2015 season due to a torn ACL before finally making his National Football League debut in 2016.

The Jaguars report to training camp in one week. He failed to make much of an impact, however, finishing the campaign with 32 combined tackles and four sacks in 16 games.

Fowler is the first Jaguars player to be arrested since linebacker Dan Skuta last summer in Orlando, but was not charged.

The 22-year-old defensive end returned to the Jaguars for the start of the 2016 season.
