No charges for Jarvis Landry after battery investigation

News broke in August that Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry was under investigation for battery by the Broward County State Attorney’s Office as the result of an incident with the mother of his child earlier this year.

The woman said Landry did not inflict any physical harm and Landry said the same, but the investigation continued into September. It has now come to an end and Landry will not be facing any charges.

“I am very thankful that this matter is over and my family and I can put this behind us now,” Landry said in a statement, via Adam Schefter of ESPN. “I greatly respect and appreciate the Broward County State Attorney’s Office for their hard work and thorough investigation into this matter and I am thankful that they were able to come to a conclusion that reaffirms the true facts that no crime was committed. My daughter’s mother and I will continue to co-parent to raise our child in a happy and healthy environment. I would like to thank my family and friends for their continued support throughout this process.”

The NFL was reportedly doing its own investigation into the matter and, as we’ve been reminded in the Ezekiel Elliott case, the absence of criminal charges doesn’t mean the league won’t try to impose discipline on a player.

  1. If they treat it the same as they treated Zeke then they’ve already decided he’ll be suspended 6 games and spend the next year trying to find any evidence, legitimate or not, to justify their predetermined outcome

  2. According to the “Zeke” rules, he must still get 6 games weather charges were filed or not, right?, if not Zeke should sue!

  3. ““I am very thankful that this matter is over and my family and I can put this behind us now,” Landry said in a statement, via Adam Schefter”

    Easy Jarvis, the NFL may still investigate and suspend you for 6 games based on no evidence of any kind. However, NFL Chief investigator Lisa Friel is a Giants fan, and has no beef with the Dolphins unless the AFCE plays the NFCE next year so you’re probably clear. Or not.

  4. Probably a warning. The difference is that the woman involved spoke on his behalf. It doesn’t reflect well on the league that this incident happened in the first place, but it’s light-years removed from Elliot’s situation.
