NFL to suspend Jameis Winston for allegedly grabbing female Uber driver&#039s crotch, report says

NFL to suspend Jameis Winston for allegedly grabbing female Uber driver&#039s crotch, report says

The NFL plans to suspend Tampa Bay Buccanneers quarterback Jameis Winston for the very first 3 games of the 2018 typical season for violating the league’s individual conduct policy, ESPN reported Thursday.

The discipline stems from an incident in March 2016, in which a female Uber driver in Scottsdale, Ariz., claimed that Winston had grabbed her crotch.

The report said that the league had not notified Winston of its official decision on a suspension and noted that the length of the punishment could improve or decrease. NFL Media reported Thursday that Winston was &quotexpected&quot to be suspended for &quotseveral&quot games.

The NFL did not return Fox News’ requests for comment.


The driver, identified as &quotKate,&quot went public with her claims against Winston in an interview with BuzzFeed News this past November. She said that Winston groped her while they waited in a drive-thru line at a regional Mexican restaurant.

Kate mentioned she filed a complaint with Uber right after her ride with Winston, but declined to file charges because &quotI didn&rsquot want to be publicly recognized as the lady who Jameis Winston groped.&quot

Winston denied the driver’s claims at the time, saying in a statement that she was &quotconfused as to the number of passengers in the automobile and who was sitting subsequent to her.&quot

&quotThe accusation is false, and given the nature of the allegation and elevated awareness and consideration of these sorts of matters, I am addressing this false report right away,&quot Winston added. &quotAt the time of the alleged incident, I denied the allegations to Uber, however they still decided to suspend my account.&quot

The Buccaneers selected Winston with the 1st all round draft choose in 2015 out of Florida State. He began 13 games in 2017, of which Tampa Bay only won three. In these 13 games, Winston completed 63.eight % of his passes, throwing 19 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

Winston was previously accused of rape by a fellow FSU student, Erica Kinsman, in 2012. The lawsuit was settled with undisclosed terms in 2016.&nbsp
