ATLANTA (AP)—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.

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

Doesn't sound like much of anything other than someone got angry and called police.
That's how a lot of them start I'm sure. No matter how you look at it, having the police come to the door of a player sends bad signals to fantasy owners everywhere.

I disagree 100%. First of all, there is no mention of anything more than a dispute. Secondly, I think this might give the Burner more incentive to go out and run all over the cards to the tune of 200+ & 2-3 TD's.She probably told him she wanted 1/2 of his post season checks and he told her where to shove it ! Female money-monger is my guess!

Prejudice much?

Why? Other than being concerned he may get suspended why should I care? Anyone who drafts their fantasy team around "character" guys are taking this hobby way to seriously.
 
It is what it is...doesn't look good for Turner, but nothing seems to be coming from this call. Hopefully ATL/Turner fans can keep their cool, same goes for the other side...

 
So, the dude knocks up a chick and won't marry her, and then he scares her enough for her to call police.

San Diego's decision to stick with LT and let Turner walk is starting to make a bit more sense.

Nah, I just like my players to be on the field, not on suspension or the court room, or both. I used to think the way you do, but once you've been burned too many times you change your tune. Having said that, the Turner issue might be minor.
 
Not to minimize the situation, but we don't know enough of the circumstances here, and there were no charges or arrests made.

Turner really ought to grow up and take these kind of consequences into consideration before he acts next time.
 
If I had a nickel for everytime I had the police called on me for fightin' with my baby mama......

yea... having the police called is very minor. police get called to loud parties all the time... if there is yelling, some pos residents will call the police.. if he were charged or arrested it would be another story.

While I'm not a guilty-until-proven-innocent type, I am a firm believer in no-smoke-without-a-fire. The fact that he even has a baby-mama tells a tiny bit about him. The fact that the police were called because of a loud argument tells us a bit more.Like I said, it's not a sign of a criminal or anything, but it certainly is 'smoke'. There's most-likely a fire burning somewhere.

The Brandon Marshall suspension is a great example of why it's best to just wait and see. Too many people jump to too many conclusions way too fast. Of course this is Turner's only incident with the 5.0 so it makes it a bit easier.

First season watching the NFL?
 
I would be careful about type-casting guys as "shifty" who have children with women they don't marry. If you take away the "lots of money" and "good at football" criteria, that club isn't very exclusive. It's adding those two criteria that make "stories" like these reportable.

How is that more prejudiced than all the posts assuming the big bad nfl player is the bad guy?

Ok, I'll bite... WTF are you talking about?
My guess is that he feels the decision to go with Tomlinson over Turner had more to do with Tomlinson being one of the best RBs in the history of the game moreso than the outside chance that Turner might get a late-night call from the police over nothing.

Hmmm. And I'm saying, I always wondered why San Diego would let a young RB go when they knew LT was getting up there in age and shown some durability issues. While I certainly don't think that this domestic disturbance means that Turner is suddenly Lawrence Phillips, it could be the tip of the iceberg and maybe San Diego didn't want to invest millions and millions on a player who may not be a high-character guy. I guess we'll see going forward.

:confused: So do you have some insight on this subject? Like who did make the call to police? Why were the police called? It seems by your statements that you have a lot more information about this than the rest of us...please share.......if you don't you are making a judgement based on very little info which really shows low-character.......
