This is so ridiculous we wish it weren’t real…
Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Dan Skuta was arrested last week in Orlando after allegedly shoving a woman in the face, sending her head into a glass window.
Turns out it’s because she refused to give him her phone number!
The NFL star was arrested by cops in the Florida city around 2:00 a.m. on June 19, and charged with misdemeanor battery at the time, only to have the police report and mugshot (above) finally be revealed today.
The victim is now claiming that things got physical only after she turned down the linebacker’s advances, refusing to give him her phone number — and for the trouble, she was assaulted by the 6’3″, 250-lb. man.
The police report describes it:
“When Skuta asked for [victim’s] phone number where she told him no, a verbal altercation ensued between the two. … The altercation turned physical when Skuta pushed victim’s face with an open hand which caused the back of her head to hit a glass window.”
Cops believe Skuta was intoxicated at the time of the altercation, and while the victim refused medical treatment at the scene, that doesn’t make this incident any less serious.
The linebacker has since pled not guilty, but he’s due back in court in July.
