The NFL is investigating Jameis Winston after an Uber Driver said he he grabbed her crotch last year while she was transporting the quarterback.
The driver identified as “Kate” told reporters, “He sexually assaulted me, and I have every right to tell the damn truth about it.” She did not go to the police after the alleged incident but did file a complaint with Uber. Uber released a statement saying, “The behavior the driver reported is disturbing and wrong. The rider was permanently removed from the app shortly after we learned of the incident.”
Winston has denied the accusation and released a statement. He statement read: “The accusation is false, and given the nature of the allegation and increased awareness and consideration of these types of matters, I am addressing this false report immediately. At the time of the alleged incident, I denied the allegations to Uber, yet they still decided to suspend my account. While I am certain that I did not make any inappropriate contact, I don’t want to engage in a battle with the driver and I regret if my demeanor or presence made her uncomfortable in any way.”
