Now, the NFL has decided to investigate Ezekiel Elliott’s mentor Michael Irvin for sexual assault accusations. Read on…
back in March a woman whom Michael Irvin knew claimed she was drugged and sexually assaulted during a night out with Irvin in Ft. Lauderdale. After the claims first surfaced, Irvin quickly denied all accusations. Then, 4-months later, the state attorney’s office announced they were not filing charges, citing a lack of evidence.
The woman claimed that he drugged her, but the only problem with her accusations was that there was no evidence that Irvin gave her any drugs or alcohol. To top that, the woman had drugs already in her system, but not from Irvin. The drugs include Xanax, cocaine and ecstasy, which she lied about, since she had been using.
Welp, it seems that the NFL is investigating the matter because of their expanded personal conduct policy. Basically Ezekiel Elliott’s domestic violence appeal, which he just lost, has put cases like this to the forefront.
The policy extends well beyond players and also encompasses “owners, coaches, players, other team employees, game officials, and employees of the league office, NFL Films, NFL Network, or any other NFL business.”
Irvin is subject to investigation because he works as an analyst for NFL Network.
