Xavien Howard is the best Miami Dolphins player and let’s face it this news that he was being charged for domestic violence was huge. Well, today that news turned into positive news for the Dolphins and their 26 year old cornerback.

Howard’s attorney, Michael C. Grieco, says it was announced at a short hearing in a Broward County courtroom that the case against the NFL player has been dismissed.

His fiancee alleged he roughed her up after an argument at their Davie, Fla. home on Dec. 29.

In the police report, obtained by TMZ Sports, the woman says Howard grabbed her, pushed her against a mirrored wall, and when he let her go, she fell on one of his crutches.

Cops say in the report they noticed visible scratches, redness and an abrasion on the woman’s body. TMZ has the police call from Howard’s fiance as well and it is interesting. She states he has abused her more than once in the past.
