Jarvis Landry Case: Video Shows WR Push Baby Mama Officials Believe It Was Accident

9/26/2017 4:08 PM PDT

Prosecutors say surveillance video shows Miami Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry pushing his baby mama during a dispute in front of her car on April 1 ... but they ultimately believed the woman who claimed it was accidental. 

TMZ Sports has obtained official documents in the domestic violence case -- in which prosecutors say Landry's baby mama initially told responding officers that Jarvis had "pushed her back by placing his hands on her chest and pushed her backwards into the vehicle, causing her to strike her back against the top of the vehicle."

Jarvis denied getting physical with the woman -- but cops noticed a surveillance camera nearby and obtained the footage. 

Officials say the footage shows Jarvis pushing the woman -- and then possibly slapping her twice. 

The woman said Jarvis did NOT slap her -- he was reaching for a cell phone -- and it only LOOKED like he slapped her. 

Cops say they enhanced the video and it appeared the woman was right about the slap. As for the push, cops say both the woman and Jarvis claimed the contact was unintentional -- he was trying to grab her phone and accidentally pushed her chest. 

The woman later told investigators she was emotional from just having a kid when she initially told cops Jarvis pushed her -- and insisted she had "exaggerated" the facts.

Officials ultimately believed the contact was an accident and decided NOT to press domestic violence charges against Landry.

But when Gase was asked about the player and his situation -- he gave short answers and told reporters he hasn't spoken with LT and has no idea where he is right now. 

When asked if he's expecting Timmons to remain on the team moving forward, Gase said, "I have nothing to add for what I have right now. Really, just gathering a lot of information ... and I got a few other things I gotta deal with, with the guys that played yesterday."

Yeah, doesn't sound good.

Mercury Morris Props to Panthers ... But You're No '72 Dolphins

12/8/2015 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports asked Mercury Morris -- the mouthpiece of the '72 Miami Dolphins -- how he felt about the Carolina Panthers making a run at an undefeated season. His response:  

"Go ask the Patriots how difficult it is to do it and how they feel about some little kid in Guatemala wearing those perfect 19-0 Super Bowl tees."

The 68-year-old running back says he's impressed with Cam Newton and company, but says at the end of the day -- it only gets harder from here. 

"I have to take my hat off to them. It's not easy to get 12 wins," Morris says. 

However, Mercury warns that a "ton of teams" have made it to 12 only to lose at game 13. "The Broncos did it, Colts and the Saints a few years back."

"Let [the Panthers] get past that jinx of the 13th game and then come ask me again if I think they will have a perfect season."

Still, Morris says even if they run the table, they'll always play second fiddle to the '72 Fins. 

"Do you know the second biggest canyon in the U.S.? No, because everyone only knows about the Grand Canyon. No one cares about the second to do anything." 

For the record, it's Palo Duro Canyon in Texas
