Miami police are investigating an alleged incident that took place between Dallas Cowboys receiver Terrance Williams and a popular Instagram model named Nicole Zavala.
According to TMZ Sports, police are looking into an incident that broke out in a Miami hotel room this past Saturday. Williams was staying at the Fontainebleau Hotel, which is attached to a nightclub, where Zavala claims she met Williams. (RELATED: Retired Tight End Reveals How Many NFL Players Use Marijuana)

Zavala allegedly went back up to Williams’ room where some kind of verbal fight broke out. Williams reportedly asked Zavala to leave after he learned she had a boyfriend, but she refused. Williams then called one of his friends to try to physically escort her out and down the hallway.
Shortly after the altercation, Zavala posted photos of bruises on her arms that she claims she got during the incident. Both Zavala and Williams say he never laid a hand on her, but she’s still got photos that show some kind of foul play.
Police are now working through a pretty big stack of evidence. They claim they have cell phone video of Zavala sitting on the bed and refusing to leave. They’re investigating the incident as a “battery report,” according to TMZ.
Williams has maintained he handled the situation with respect and professionalism.
“Having spoke with eyewitnesses, it is demonstrably obvious that this lady has made a false report regarding Terrance,” his attorney Chip Lewis said. “Terrance did absolutely nothing wrong. He politely asked her to leave his room and she refused. One of the eyewitnesses escorted her out of the room. Terrance and the eyewitnesses cooperated with the police and will continue to do so.”
As it stands now, Williams is out with a foot injury and is expected to return as soon as December 9.
