Dolphins CB Xavien Howard cleared of domestic violence charges

MIAMI (WSVN) - Miami Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard has been cleared of all charges related to his Dec. 26 arrest.

The announcement that the charges were dropped came after Howard, 26, was scheduled to face a judge Thursday morning.

Howard was previously arrested in December on a domestic battery charge involving his fiancée.

Police said Howard had pushed his fiancée against a wall during an argument.

After being pushed, she allegedly fell to the ground and injured her arms.

On Tuesday, TMZ released the 911 call made to police claiming the cornerback had abused her.

Howard’s fiancée said the argument was because of a purse she bought.

The State Attorney’s Office said Howard’s fiancée decided she did not want to prosecute.

Failing to have any other witnesses, attorneys were unable to proceed with the case.
