ORLANDO, Fla. – Charges have been dropped against Jaguars linebacker Dan Skuta, who was arrested last month in Orlando, according to the state attorney's office.

Skuta was arrested in June on a charge of simply battery.

According to the police report, Skuta was accused of pushing a woman's head into a glass window on East Central Boulevard.

The police report from June 19 said Skuta struck up a conversation with the victim, who News4Jax is not naming, flirted with her and asked for her phone number. According to the report, she refused to give it to him and the two began an argument, which turned physical when Skuta pushed the victim's face with an open hand, causing the back of her head to hit a glass window.

The report said the victim did not have any visible injuries and declined medical attention but chose to press charges. The charge was later dropped.

Skuta, 30, played for Grand Valley State University and was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Bengals in 2009.

He's played for multiple NFL teams and was signed as a free agent by the Jaguars last year.
