Maurice Jones-Drew Facing Charges



Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew is now running from more than just the defense. The NFL star could be charged with battery after allegedly brawling with a security guard at the Conch House restaurant in St. Augustine, FL Sunday night.

According to the police report obtained by TMZ, Jones-Drew intentionally punched a security guard, knocking him out, after the guard put one of his friends in a headlock. In the report, witnesses say the guard was telling the football star’s friend to stop touching a young female when the fight ensued.

HipHollywood spoke with one of the managers at the Conch House Restaurant who said they could not comment, but did confirm the incident took place during their Reggae Sunday Memorial Day Weekend Bash this past weekend. They also said no one from the restaurant has spoken out about the incident, and any claims from other outlets are false.

The Jacksonville Jaguars also tell us in a statement that they are “aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering more information”, but can not comment further due to legal concerns.

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
