NFL legend Michael Irvin is being investigated in a sexual assault case


NFL Hall of Famer Michael Irvin is being investigated in a sexual assault case, NBC Sports reports.

Irvin, a former Dallas Cowboys star receiver and current NFL Network commentator, has not been charged in the case. 

A woman told police she met Irvin at a bar and went to his hotel room. She said she felt sick, tried to fight off Irvin, and woke up as he was checking out. Fearing she had been drugged and raped, she sought medical testing, according to TMZ.

Irvin's lawyer, Larry Friedman, has denied the charges. 

"Even the complaint that she made specifically says she does not recall the events that took place," Friedman said.

Irvin has been named in sexual assault cases twice before, but has never been charged. In one instance, Nina Shahravan admitted to lying about the incident and and spent 90 days in jail. In 2007, a woman accused him of sexual assault, but prosecutors did not press charges, and the case ultimately ended in a settlement.

Ft. Lauderdale police told the (South Florida) Sun-Sentinel Irvin had been named, but not charged in the case. The investigation remains open.
