Miami Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard was arrested and charged with domestic battery charges Sunday night.
According to reports, Howard allegedly grabbed his fiancee by both her arms and pushed her against the mirrored glass wall in the hall of their bedroom. She then fell and landed on his medical assistant's walking crutch.
ESPN reports than an officer said he observed scratches and redness on her right wrist/forearm from Howard grabbing her as well as a graze and redness from the fall.
Howard was taken to the Davie Police Department where he was processed before he was transported to a local hospital after complaining knee pain from a recent surgery. He was then transferred to Broward County Jail. He paid a $3,000 bond on Monday.
"We are aware of the situation and currently gathering information," the Dolphins said in a statement. "We will have no further comment at this time."
Coach Brian Flores says they are looking into the incident.
"We're still gathering information on that. We take situations like that very, very serious. We're gathering information. It's unfortunate," Flores said. "How does it impact us? It does impact us. Again, we take these things very seriously. We'll gather all information and do what we feel is best for the organization.
"It's too early to tell. I haven't even talked to him. We have a process here. We'll go through that process, Chris, myself, Brandon, Tom, we'll have a conversation with X and make a decision once we get all the information."
