METAIRIE, La. (ESPN) — The New Orleans Saints are aware of a 2013 video that allegedly shows outside linebacker Junior Galette striking a woman with a belt during a group scuffle on a beach that was recorded by an onlooker.

“We were made aware of the video, and we sent it to the league office,” Saints spokesman Greg Bensel said. “There is a process this will go through at the league office level, and we are waiting on that to be determined.”

In the video, a man who appears to be Galette fights another man using his belt. He then swings the belt at the surrounding group and strikes a woman twice with it. Later on, he shoves several people and throws a punch.

Galette’s attorney, Ralph Whalen, has told media outlets that his client is not the person in the video.
