MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard is facing a domestic battery charge after his arrest on Sunday night.

Howard, 26, was arrested by Davie police at his home following an argument over the purchase of a purse by the mother of his three children.

Police said the bedroom argument turned physical when Howard grabbed both of her arms and pushed her back against a mirrored glass wall in the hallway of their bedroom.
