Cyrus Jones’ Domestic Violence Charges Dropped: Latest Details and Reaction

Domestic violence charges against Alabama defensive back Cyrus Jones have been dismissed two days after he was arrested in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

According to the Tuscaloosa Police Department, per Charlie Potter of 247Sports, all charges against Jones were dismissed:

After speaking to Jones, the victim (a 22-year-old female) and witnesses on Wednesday, police determined that Jones took and damaged the victim’s cell phone and threatened to assault her.

According to the TPD, however, “sufficient probable cause existed for both offenses,” but the dismissal of the charges comes because Jones attempted to “deescalate the situation” by calling the police.

On April 29, WBRC Fox 6 reported Jones was arrested and booked on one count of harassment and one count of criminal mischief. He was “held under a mandatory 12-hour domestic violence hold.”

Following the arrest, Alabama head coach Nick Saban said in a statement (via Matt Zenitz of AL.com) that the program was still gathering information before making any decision on Jones’ future: “We don’t ever condone any behavior that shows any kind of disrespect. There was no physical contact in this situation. Once we get the facts, we will take the necessary steps to correct this behavior in the future.”

Jones is entering his senior season with the Crimson Tide. He appeared in all 14 games for Alabama last season, recording three interceptions, and was named to the All-SEC second team. Jones started his college career as a wide receiver before switching to defense in 2013.

We were treated to an intriguing doubleheader in the Indian Premier League on Friday, as the Delhi Daredevils and the Mumbai Indians sampled crucial victories.  

It was easy going for the Daredevils, as a brutal bowling performance helped limit Kings XI Punjab to just 118 for eight from their 20 overs. They chased the score down with ease, winning by nine wickets with 37 balls remaining in the match.

The later game was a much more even affair, with Mumbai posting an imposing total of 187 for five after batting first. Rajasthan Royals made a good fist of the chase, but they eventually finished up eight runs short in their pursuit.
