Miami Dolphins' star wide receiver Jarvis Landry is under investigation for battery.

The alleged incident took place in a Fort Lauderdale apartment earlier this year, multiple sources say. It involves Landry's girlfriend, Estrella Cerqueira. 

Teeth, feet, hands, and fist were listed on a police report as weapons in the alleged incident. 

Estrella has not been cooperating with authorities, sources say. 

She released a statement on Monday saying she was not physically hurt and asked the media to stop "spreading this completely false story."

The Broward State Attorney's office has confirmed the investigation, though. 

Police in Fort Lauderdale had the option to drop the case themselves, but decided against it. The state attorney received the case from police late last week. 

A decision on possible charges is not expected this week.

Dolphins head coach Adam Gase said "we're aware of it," when asked about this report on Monday morning. 

Landry has an open paternity court case with his girlfriend in Broward. 

"The parties are involved in what has been a very civil family court case," her attorney said. "Beyond that, we have nothing to add."

Last weekend, gossip site Fameolous alluded to a possible incident involving Landry and his girlfriend.
