Dallas Cowboys Special Teams Player Accused Of Sexual Assault
Dallas Cowboy special teams player C. J. Spillman is being investigated by Dallas police because of an alleged incident that took place September 20 at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center.
“We have a sexual assault report we are investigating at this time, and it does involve C.J. Spillman,” said Sgt. Robert Eberling, a police spokesman. “He is involved in the investigation. We are looking into the matter.”…
Civil rights attorney Gloria Allred sent a letter to the commissioner on Friday, a week after Goodell’s uneasy news conference, saying she represents a woman who filed a police report alleging an NFL player had raped her.
The alleged perpetrator, accompanied by a team official, met with police on Sept. 20, Allred said in the letter.
“Thereafter, the accused was then allowed by his team to play the following day,” the letter added. “We have asked the NFL whether or not this alleged rape was reported to them and if they approved this accused individual’s playing in the game notwithstanding the allegations that had been made against him.”
In her news conference Monday, Allred revealed her client underwent a rape kit examination and provided other evidence. Allred said her client was told the player was contacted by police and appeared at a station with a representative of his team, and then played the next day, Sept. 21.[su_csky_ad]
