The girlfriend of Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry is defending him as officials investigate a possible domestic battery.

Landry’s sports management firm put out a statement Monday by Estrella Cerqueira saying she was not harmed and that someone who overheard an argument between them called police. Cerqueira called it a completely false story.

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.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase says the team is aware of the situation and that “proper steps” have been taken.
