NFL | Irvin accused of rape
Diana Moskovitz, of The Miami Herald, reports a woman who says she was raped by former NFL WR Michael Irvin has filed a civil lawsuit against in Broward (Fla.) Circuit Court. No criminal charges have been filed, but the Broward State Attorney's Office has been looking into the case and is expected to reach a conclusion next week, according to spokesman Ron Ishoy. The woman, who is not named in the suit, said the attack happened in 2007. Irvin's lawyer, Larry Friedman, called the accusations "totally untrue." In the suit, the woman said Irvin bought her alcohol to get her drunk, then lured her to his hotel room. The incident was reported to Seminole police July 20, 2007, according to Seminole Tribe spokesman Gary Bitner. Bitner said, "They investigated it thoroughly. Although by that time there was no longer any forensic evidence or surveillance video." The woman signed a waiver of prosecution a day later, which Bitner attributed to "her desire to essentially put it behind her and not have it be splashed all over the newspapers."
