The event occurred in an apartment complex parking lot when a man commented on Fowler’s driving, according to Mike Kaye of First Coast News. Fowler then got out of his vehicle, hit the man, and proceeded to step on his glasses. He also grabbed a bag of groceries from the man and threw it in a nearby lake.
Fowler drew misdemeanor charges for the incident and was released at around 1:40 a.m. on a $650 bond.
The Jaguars released a statement Wednesday morning confirming they are aware of the situation and gathering more information.
“The team has been in communication with Dante. No further comment will be made at this time,” the statement reads.
Fowler was the Jaguars’ third overall draft pick in 2015. He missed his entire rookie season after tearing his ACL during the first day of rookie minicamp but played in every game in 2016, recording 32 tackles and four sacks.
