The NFL is investigating an allegation that Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston groped a female Uber driver in March 2016.
The NFLs investigation was first reported Friday by BuzzFeed News. They viewed a letter it said was sent from NFL executive Lisa Friel to the Uber driver.
“The League has been informed that you may have been the victim of such a violation perpetrated by Tampa Bay Buccaneers player Jameis Winston,” Friel wrote in the letter. “The league takes allegations of this nature very seriously and has opened an investigation into this matter.”
Winston denied all allegations and said in a statement Friday that the “accusation is false.”
