Jaguars WR Zay Jones appears in court on domestic battery charge, judge sets bond

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Zay Jones appeared in court Tuesday morning after he was arrested for domestic battery on Monday.

Jones, 28, is being represented by high-profile Jacksonville attorney Hank Coxe.


Coxe asked that Jones, whose legal first name is Isaiah, be released on his own recognizance, and Jones’ bond was set at $2,503. Jones did not speak during the brief court appearance.

According to Jones’ arrest report, police were dispatched around 2:20 p.m. Monday to a gas station on San Pablo Road South about a reported battery that happened at a nearby condo.

The victim told police that she got into an argument with Jones. According to Jones’ arrest report, police “observed several small scratches on the victim’s neck, consistent with marks from a fingernail.”
