Jaguars LB Dan Skuta arrested, charged with battery

Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Dan Skuta was arrested and charged with misdemeanor first-degree battery for an incident in Orlando on June 19.

The Orlando Police Department told actionnewsjax.com that Skuta pushed a woman's face "with an open hand into a glass window" at around 2:30 a.m. Skuta, according to the police, had alcohol on his breath and bloodshot eyes.

According to the accuser, she and her friend were standing on the sidewalk when Skuta approached her, "and began talking to her and flirting with her. When Skuta asked for [the woman's] phone number [and] she told him, 'No,' a verbal altercation ensued."

Skuta, who paid a $500 bond, has a July 20 court appearance, according to the Orange County (Florida) Clerk's office. The linebacker is demanding a jury trial on the charges, according to documents on the Orange County Clerk's website.

Skuta faces potential actions from the NFL. Commissioner Roger Goodell updated the league's domestic violence policy in 2014. The policy calls for a six-game suspension without pay for a first offense and possible lifetime ban for a second offense.

"The Jaguars are aware of the situation involving linebacker Dan Skuta and are currently gathering more information," the team said in a released statement. "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 had 40 tackles and 1.5 sacks last season with the Jaguars.
