Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Daniel Skuta was arrested earlier this month and faces a misdemeanor battery charge, according to a police report obtained by CBS 47 in Jacksonville.
Skuta, 30, was allegedly involved in a physical altercation with a woman on the morning of June 19. The incident was reported by a friend of the victim around 2:30 a.m. Skuta allegedly pushed the woman's head into a glass window after she refused to give him her phone number. Deputies told CBS 47 that the victim refused treatment and they didn't see any injuries.
Skuta, who police said had bloodshot eyes and alcohol on his breath, was released from jail on a $500 bond later that morning.
On Monday, the Jaguars released a statement:
"The Jaguars are aware of the situation involving linebacker Dan Skuta and are currently gathering more information. The team has been in constant communication with Dan through this process in its entirety. No further comment can be made at this time."
Skuta, who is entering his eighth year in the NFL, signed a five-year $20 million contract with Jacksonville in 2015.
