The Arizona Cardinals made a formal statement regarding the news of running back Jonathan Dwyer being questioned and subsequently arrested on charges related to a domestic dispute.

We became aware of these allegations this afternoon when notified by Phoenix police and are cooperating fully. Given the serious nature of the allegations we have taken the immediate step to deactivate Jonathan from all team activities. We will continue to closely monitor this as it develops and evaluate additional information as it becomes available.

Arizona moved quickly upon learning of the allegations, something that should be seen as a positive by fans, especially in light of recent events around the league.
