FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Officials say Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry is being investigated for possible domestic battery.
A spokesman for the Broward County State Attorney’s office said Monday in an email the allegations were under review and no decision has been made on whether Landry will be charged.
The case was recently referred to prosecutors by the Fort Lauderdale Police Department. A police spokeswoman said the incident occurred in April.
Dolphins coach Adam Gase says the team is aware of the situation and that “proper steps” have been taken.
Monday afternoon, Landry's girlfriend Estrella Cerqueira released a statement through a publicist saying there was never any concern "for my well-being" and that Landry "would never, ever do anything to harm me or anyone else."
