Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry being investigated in alleged battery case

No decision is expected this week on possible charges.

Miami Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry is reportedly being investigated by the Broward County State Attorney's Office for battery. Apparently Jarvis Landry and the mother of his child were involved in an incident that lead to battery.

Fort Lauderdale police presented an investigation to the Broward state attorney's office, which is reviewing the matter, said state attorney spokesman Ron Ishoy said.

The alleged incident was reported to police shortly before 10:30 p.m. on April 1, according to the incident report's cover sheet.

Dolphins head coach Adam Gase confirmed the investigation after Monday's practice. Andy Slater was first to report the incident.

His girlfriend has not been cooperating with authorities, sources say.

"There were no arrests made, there were no criminal charges, I was not in any way physically harmed", the statement read, with Cerqueira noting that the couple is going through a civil family court case.

The 24-year-old Landry is in his fourth National Football League season out of Louisiana State University. He has 3,051 yards and 13 touchdowns over the past three seasons with the Dolphins. However, the receiver says he will end negotiations with the team once the season starts.

He's entering the final year of his rookie contract and has been discussing a contract extension this offseason.
