Landry has been cleared of all charges.
Miami Dolphins star wide receiver Jarvis Landry was cleared of domestic violence charges in late September, after a Florida state attorney decided not to file charges following an investigation into incident that occurred in March. Today, footage from the domestic violence incident has been released by TMZ.
According to TMZ Sports, Landry's rep says the contact seen in the video was not a push but rather "incidental contact" during an argument. The surveillance footage, which was taken on April 1st, has been blurred out by police but shows Landry confronting the woman outside of his Florida apartment complex.
The woman, who Landry has a child with, had initially told police that he battered her, though Landry refuted the claims telling cops she had hit his body and got back in the car. The woman later switched up her story and told investigators she was just emotional from having a kid and explained how she "exaggerated" the facts during the initial police call.
According to TMZ, cops say in the raw version of the footage it's quite obvious that Landry did not slap the woman, and was only trying to take a cell phone from her.
Of course, thanks to Ezekiel Elliott's case, we all know that the NFL can still suspend players even if they were not proven guilty in court. Luckily for Landry, an NFL spokesperson has confirmed that the Dolphins wide receiver won't face league discipline under the Personal Conduct Policy due to "insufficient evidence."
Check out the footage, obtained by TMZ, below.
So far this season Landry has caught 61 passes, including five touchdowns, for 472 yards. After nine games this season, the Dolphins are 4-5 and will travel to Tampa Bay this weekend for their makeup game against the 3-6 Buccaneers.
The two teams were originally supposed to square off in Week 1 but the game got moved to Week 11, their scheduled bye week, due to Hurricane Irma.
