JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew will not be charged in connection with an alleged bar fight last month.

Jones-Drew had been accused of punching a bouncer at a restaurant/bar in St. Augustine over Memorial Day weekend.

The State Attorney's Office filed an "announcement of no information" Tuesday, saying "based on the facts and the law, the state cannot establish the charge beyond and to the exclusion of all reasonable doubt."

Jones-Drew declined to answer questions about the incident at a news conference this month. His agent insisted his client was not involved in an altercation with a bouncer at the Conch House on May 26. The bouncer's attorney, meanwhile, called it an "unprovoked attack."

Jones-Drew says he is pleased with the result and looks "forward to focusing on football."
