Jaguars defensive end Dante Fowler apologized today for his role in a fight between who TMZ describes as his girlfriend and the mother of his child, which was captured on surveillance video footage from the building.
According to TMZ, the fight happened on Feb. 1. Fowler and his girlfriend were confronted by the mother of his child, and after Fowler appeared to let the two go, the women started fighting while Fowler watched.
The video features a short clip, followed by stills of Fowler eventually breaking up the brawl:
Fowler released a statement today:
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 did, too:
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.
The NFL says it will investigate the incident.
