Video surfaced on Tuesday that showed Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Dante Fowler playing a role in a fistfight between the mother of his child and his current girlfriend.

TMZ Sports released the video, which shows Fowler apparently playing the role of referee before the two women who started fighting at a Florida apartment complex.

The video is below:

The Jaguars and Fowler released statements addressing the video on Tuesday. They came via WTLV/WJXX in Jacksonville, Fla.

Here is the Jaguars’ statement:

"Dante brought the incident to our attention prior to the video released and was embarrassed and remorseful," the Jaguars said in a statement Tuesday. "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."

And here is what Fowler had to say:

"I am embarrassed and have apologized for my actions to everyone involved," Fowler said.  "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."

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told TMZ Sports that "these are disturbing images and we will review the matter."
