According to a Florida Assistant State Attorney, the charge of domestic battery against Zay Jones, wide receiver for the Jacksonville Jaguars, has been dropped. Prosecutors have decided not to pursue the case.

How was Zay Jones Accused

In relation to an incident on November 13, 2023, it has been reported that Jones and the mother of his child engaged in a heated argument that eventually turned into a physical altercation at an apartment in Jacksonville. The incident seemingly occurred when she informed Jones of her plans to take their child to Orlando, which is 140 miles away.

The officers noted the presence of minor scratches on the victim's neck, which appeared to be caused by a fingernail. Consequently, the individual was charged with first degree domestic battery causing bodily harm, in relation to the incident. The Jaguars had not provided any statement regarding the situation during the arrest and charge.

Who is Zav Jones Jaguars wide receiver 

Jones had an impressive college football career at East Carolina University (ECU). Throughout his tenure with the ECU Pirates, he solidified his reputation as one of the most accomplished receivers in NCAA history.

Jones achieved an impressive feat by setting multiple records, one of which was the NCAA Division I record for career receptions with an astounding 399 catches. In 2016, he achieved an impressive feat by setting the single-season FBS record for receptions with 158 catches. Throughout his college career, Jones consistently demonstrated exceptional performance, achieving over 1,000 receiving yards in each of his last three seasons.

In addition to his impressive statistics, he gained a reputation for his strong leadership skills, serving as a team captain and earning respect for his unwavering dedication and strong work ethic. As a result of these exceptional qualities, he was chosen by the Buffalo Bills in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft and has also had the opportunity to showcase his talents with the Oakland [now Las Vegas] Raiders.

However, in 2022, Zav Jones joined the Jaguars and has since become a frequent recipient of passes from Trevor Lawrence, the team's young quarterback. By 2023, he had accumulated an impressive record of 287 receptions, 3028 receiving yards, and 18 touchdowns.
