Miami Dolphins Pro Bowl CB Xavien Howard is being sued for assault and battery by the mother of his children, according to Andy Slater. The woman demanded $12M before filing the lawsuit, Howard’s attorney says.
Howard’s attorneys released a statement late Monday, dismissing the assault claim.
The serious but baseless allegations alleged in this lawsuit, some of which have already been recanted by the accuser, have already been thoroughly investigated TWICE, resulting in both law enforcement and the NFL exonerating Xavien of any wrongdoing.
When Xavien refused to pay the $12 million demanded in exchange for not filing the case, it was unfortunately filed.
Xavien wishes to treat everyone with respect, especially the mother of his children and will not have any comment at this time. My office is already preparing a sanctions letter because we believe this matter has absolutely no basis in fact.
Howard was first arrested in Florida on Dec. 29, 2019, after Davie Police received a distress call from a woman alleging that Howard was physically abusing her.
