ATLANTA — Atlanta Falcons running back Michael Turner was involved in a "domestic dispute" Monday night with the mother of his infant child, Gwinnett County Police Corp. David Schiralli said.

Schiralli said police responded to a call between 7 and 8 p.m. EST Monday, but he would not identify the woman or the site of the incident.

Police made no arrests and do not plan to file charges.

"There is not enough probable cause for us to proceed any further," Schiralli said.
Turner finished second in the NFL with 1,699 yards rushing and 16 touchdowns to earn his first Pro Bowl invitation. The 26-year-old signed a $34.5 million contract with the Falcons after leaving San Diego as an unrestricted free agent in March.

The Falcons issued the following statement Tuesday night.

“We’re aware of the report concerning Michael Turner. It’s our understanding that the authorities have looked into the matter and that there is no basis for any further action. We consider this matter closed and will have no further comment.”

Atlanta (11-5) will play at Arizona (9-7) Saturday in an NFC wild-card game.
