Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry under investigation over domestic incident


"We are now reviewing the matter; we do not expect a decision this week".

Fort Lauderdale police are investigating a battery case involving Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry. Apparently Jarvis Landry and the mother of his child were involved in an incident that lead to battery.

The Fort Lauderdale police department reportedly forwarded the case to the Broward County State Attorney's Office after electing not to drop it.

Landry also has an open paternity court case with Cerqueira, which her attorney describes as "very civil", according to Slater.

In a statement released through her publicist on Monday, Estrella Cerqueira said she and Landry had a "vocal disagreement" in March that never turned physical.

Teeth, feet, hands, and fist were listed as weapons in the alleged incident.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase says the team is aware of the situation and that "proper steps" have been taken. The latter did not, however, wanted to cooperate with law enforcement authorities. He was drafted by Miami in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Landry is entering the final year of his four-year, $3.74 million contract. He is tied with fellow LSU alum Odell Beckham Jr. for most catches in a player's first three seasons (288).
