A Miami Dolphins cheerleader was arrested after allegedly attacking her ex-boyfriend and another woman inside his home, police said.

Whitney Robertson, 25, was arrested Wednesday on a burglary with assault or battery charge, according to an arrest report.

According to the report, Robertson had dated the man for about three weeks, and the incident happened about a week after he ended the relationship, on March 26.

The report said the ex was having dinner with a woman in his Miami home when Robertson entered through an unlocked rear door, picked up a lit candle and threw it at them, hitting the ex in the hand. He was left with a visible bruise, the report said.

The ex-boyfriend and the other woman started to run away but Robertson began throwing porcelain plates at them, the report said. The ex managed to grab Robertson's arm and escort her outside the home, the report said.

Robertson fled the scene with the woman's cellphone, but she was later found and arrested, the report said. She was booked into jail, where she was being held on $5,000 bond Thursday, records showed. Attorney information wasn't available.

According to her bio on the Dolphins cheerleaders website, Robertson is from Garland, Texas, and is in her second year with the team.

"We were recently made aware of this report and are in the process of gathering more information on the matter," the Dolphins said in a statement.
