NFL commentator and former player, Micheal Irvin is being investigated for sexually assaulting a woman at a Florida hotel.
In a police report filed by a 27-year-old Florida woman. She claims she and Irvin were at a bar in the early morning hours of March 21 and then returned to his hotel room at the W Fort Lauderdale.
The woman says they were in Michael’s room when she began to feel sick. She says the last thing she remembers is fighting him off. She says when she woke up he was about to check out, leaving her behind. She took an Uber home and called 911 at 7:30 AM.
She told cops she feared she was drugged and raped. She was advised to go to a medical lab for a swab and a blood test, which she did, according to TMZ
Reacting to the allegation, Irvin’s lawyer, Larry Friedman, denied the charge saying:
‘The allegations are completely false. ‘In the few hours since we’ve learned about them we’ve already discovered many red flags about this young woman’s background and the allegations she made against Michael. Even the complaint that she made specifically says she does not recall the events that took place. She was very drunk that night. Nothing happened and there was no assault.”
He, however, revealed that Michael who in 2007 was accused of similar offense was in Fort Lauderdale visiting his nieces and nephews at a track meet.
‘He was also visiting his 90-year-old aunt and attending her birthday party. He was blindsided by news of these allegations.’
Police are currently investigating the case.
