Hall of Fame wide receiver Michael Irvin is under investigation for an alleged sexual assault in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

The police report was filed by a 27-year-old woman who said that she and Irvin were at a bar on March 21 before going back to a nearby hotel where Irvin was staying.

The alleged victim says she only remembers fighting Irvin off during the encounter. According to the report, after the incident, the woman went to a medical lab for a swab and blood test. However, 51-year-old Irvin says he was only in the hotel room with the woman for 15 minutes and he had no sexual contact with her.

“Michael was in Ft. 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,” Irvin’s lawyer Larry Friedman told TMZ.

“The allegations are completely false,” Friedman says. “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.”

The Hall Of Famer was accused of sexual 1996, but it was later proven that woman fabricated the whole story. He was accused of sexual assault again in 2007, which was eventually settled out of court.

Irvin first rose to prominence as a standout wide receiver at the University of Miami and went on to solidify his talents and win 3 Super Bowls with the Dallas Cowboys.
