Dante Fowler of the Jacksonville Jaguars apparently played the part of a referee during a fight between two women that TMZ has identified as his girlfriend and baby mama. The fight took place on February 1st at an apartment complex in Florida. Police weren’t called and it’s unlikely anyone would have ever heard about this if it the brawl wasn’t caught on a security camera.
Fowler, a defensive end from Florida, was the 3rd pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. He sat out the entire 2015 season with a torn ACL.
[UPDATE: Dante Fowler tells TMZ Sports, “I am embarrassed and have apologized for my actions to everyone involved. As a family, we have been dealing with this moment and the conflict that led to it since this occurred. The video surfacing is a sad reminder that emotions got the best of all of us. I take 100 percent responsibility for everything that happened.”
The Jaguars have also issued a statement saying, “Dante brought the incident to our attention prior to the video being released and was embarrassed and remorseful. Violence of this type against others is unacceptable in our society and to our organization. We will continue to look into the incident while offering resources and providing support to Dante and his family to help them through this private matter.”]
