An investigation conducted by the Jaguars, NFL security and SMG, the company that manages EverBank Field, “concluded that four individuals threw objects onto the field,” a report the team provided to the Florida Times-Union said. “Based on available video evidence, we were able to positively identify two of these individuals. All four individuals had relocated to a seat near the field wall toward the end of the game.”

Per the Times-Union’s account, the incident occurred when Jefferson was ejected from the game and walked toward the locker room tunnel. A fan in the front row threw a bottle that sailed over Jefferson’s head.

Jefferson then approached the stands and was targeted by another bottle-throwing fan. As security intervened and escorted Jefferson away from the scene, a third bottle was thrown at him. He then tried to climb the wall to the stands, and he and security personnel were doused with a cup of liquid and ice.

No arrests were made as a result of the melee.
