Jacksonville Jaguars football player arrested after battering man

Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Dante Fowler Jr, the third pick of the 2015 NFL Draft, was released after posting bond Wednesday following his arrest on battery and mischief charges.

Fowler was arrested in St. Petersburg, Fla., just after 9 p.m. ET on Tuesday.

Fowler struck a man and then stomped on his prescription glasses after a brief verbal confrontation, according to the police report obtained by the Tampa Bay Times. The victim was uninjured, according to what the victim and a witness told police. He then stepped on them, took the victim's grocery bag and threw it in the lake.

The Jaguars released a statement Wednesday morning addressing the freaky incident.

The Jaguars said in a statement they're gathering more information. He missed the entire 2015 season due to a torn ACL before finally making his National Football League debut in 2016.

Both charges are considered misdemeanors and there's a chance Fowler could face disciplinary action from the NFL.

The 22-year-old is a defensive end for the Jacksonville Jaguars who played for the Florida Gators in college. His arrest comes one week before veteran players are scheduled to report for the Jaguars' training camp.

After missing his entire rookie season due to an ACL injury, Fowler returned in 2016 to finish the year with 4.0 sacks.
