Late last night, the news of a civil lawsuit filed by a woman that alleges that she was raped by former Dallas receiver, Michael Irvin hit the ‘net. There haven’t been any criminal charges filed yet, but this is still a pretty big bombshell. To the details:
In the suit, the woman said Irvin bought her alcohol to get her drunk, then lured her to his hotel room. That’s where he and another man tried stuffing money into her clothes, the suit said.
She said Irvin and the other man insisted on sexual favors. She said no.
That’s when the unidentified man held her down and covered her mouth, according to the suit, then Irvin raped her, she said. When Irvin was done, the other man forced her to perform oral sex.
Afterward, Irvin’s brother, Derrick Irvin, came in and took her to another room and “assisted in covering the sexual assault and rape up,” according to the civil lawsuit.
The one man is unidentified because the woman doesn’t know who he is, said her lawyer, David Lister.
It was reported to Seminole police on July 20, 2007, Seminole Tribe spokesman Gary Bitner said.
“They investigated it thoroughly,” Bitner said. “Although by that time there was no longer any forensic evidence or surveillance video.”
A day later, the woman signed a waiver of prosecution, which Bitner attributed to “her desire to essentially put it behind her and not have it be splashed all over the newspapers.”
Interesting. Of course, Irvin’s camp denies it all. We’ll see how hard Irvin fight this or he just settles with her.
