Jarvis Landry on domestic incident: I’ve been upfront with law enforcement

AP

Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry spoke to reporters about the investigation that the Broward County State Attorney’s Office is doing into an alleged domestic incident with the mother of his child after the Fort Lauderdale Police Department turned it over to them.

Landry has not been arrested and Estrella Cerqueira, the mother of his child, issued a statement on Monday saying that she and Landry are going through a civil case in family court but that she was “not in any way physically harmed” during the April 1 incident.

On Tuesday, Landry said “exactly” when asked if he felt he did nothing wrong and that he’s been open about what happened with both the Dolphins and law enforcement.

“I’ve been very upfront with the team,” Landry said, via the Palm Beach Post. “I’ve been very upfront with the law enforcement. I’m here at training camp to help my guys get better. I don’t want any bad attention to me, this organization, Adam [Gase], nobody. And I don’t believe that this is the place for it or the time for it.”

Landry added that he hopes the matter is resolved in a “timely fashion,” although it is unclear when authorities will reach a resolution.

  1. “Landry added that he hopes the matter is resolved in a “timely fashion,””

    If he finds himself in Goodell’s crosshairs he’s going to find out that “timely fashion” will be sometime late 2018 or early 2019

  2. I just wish one of these guys would take responsibility for their actions once. They never do anything. Please stop hitting woman Jarvis.

  3. No proof, no one testifying,and all evidence points to nothing happened. Be prepared for an 18 month “investigation” while the Keyboard Warriors still say you did it, and the NFL eventually suspends you just for the hell of it.

    Uhhh…Jump to uninformed conclusions much? She says he has never laid a hand on her. Police report indicates no evidence of her even being touched, no bruises, red marks, scratches, nothing, sitting across the room from him yelling at each other.

  5. One of these days players are going to wise up and start dating wealthy women. There are plenty of rich girls out there looking for a good time. They don’t want you for your money.

    This article has been up for an hour and nobody has yet found a way to mention Jerry Jones?

    Contrary to what Cowboys fans think most other fans don’t give them any more thought than we do any other average team, which is what they have been for the last 20 years.

  8. “I have ocean front property in Idaho for sale if you’re interested”

    Idaho will have ocean front property when the big quake hits on the San Andreas Fault. Land in Owyhee County will be selling for a lot more than it is now. Buy early and save!

  9. “…And I don’t believe that this is the place for it or the time for it.”

    Not saying he did anything wrong, but this comment is a bit…silly? Is there a GOOD time for a potential Domestic Violence situation to be resolved? Should it revolve around a player’s personal schedule so that it is more convenient for them?

    I know some of these cats are big ol’ targets when they go out. They are young, single, well paid young men and some ladies out there want to hitch their wagon to dat, forreal for real. Some pigeons out there, too, dawg. Make up stuff to get themselves PAID. Hard to know da troof. Dats why it need be looked at, see what’s legit.

    I tend to give significant weight to a signed police report more than “eyewitnesses” or “victims”.

    I think you have to take this at face value and give Landry the benefit of the doubt. It doesn’t appear he committed a crime at this point.

    Well there goes your problem. Sorry

  13. Cmoney20 – I agree with your overall sentiment that we need to trust victims of domestic abuse, first and foremost.

    That said… she is saying she wasn’t struck by Jarvis. So we need to trust that.

    By all accounts, this appears to have been resolved at the scene, after a charge was laid. I’ve been in the same predicament over a “stolen boat”. Officers didn’t buy our story that it was borrowed so they charged us. Then within the hour it was resolved and nothing came of it. We were sent on our way, no booking. If this was being reported because in an alternate reality I have athletic talent then the headline of the story would be “X athlete charged with stealing a boat”.

    The accounts of the Landry situation are that his ex-girlfriend and him were arguing and he was standing in a doorway refusing to let her inside his home. Physical contact is impossible to avoid in such a situation.

    But nobody is saying he hit her, and the victim (who the general public should believe above all until there is a verdict) is saying he did not hit her.

    I appreciate your overall sentiment of being the victim first. I think your heart is in the right place. I think you got this one all wrong.
