Fort Lauderdale Domestic Violence Lawyer – Miami Dolphin Player Arrested on Domestic Violence Charges

Broward County, Florida. Earlier this week in Fort Lauderdale, Dolphins practice squad player Wilfred “Will” Billingsley was arrested on misdemeanor charges of domestic violence battery and resisting arrest. A Broward County judge ordered Billingsley held on $4,000 bail after he allegedly tried to throw his live-in girlfriend out of their Wilton Manors residence.

When police arrived to investigate the domestic dispute, the girlfriend had scratches on her left upper arm and neck, according to police. The 25-year-old football player has been ordered by a domestic violence judge to avoid contact with his girlfriend. The girlfriend was also arrested on a charge of obstruction after police say she interfered with Billingsley’s arrest. She was released after agreeing to appear in front of a judge at a later date.

While the girlfriend insists that Billingsley “didn’t do anything,” the Broward State Attorney’s Office said it has a “pro-prosecution policy” towards domestic violence, meaning it reviews all domestic violence cases for prosecution regardless of whether the victim plans to press charges.
