Irvin's name was reportedly listed on a sexual battery incident report, stemming from an alleged incident at a Fort Lauderdale hotel earlier this month.

Per TMZ Sports:

The woman says they were in Michael's room when she began to feel sick. She says the last thing she remembers is fighting him off. She says when she woke up he was about to check out, leaving her behind. She took an Uber home and called 911 at 7:30 AM.

She told cops she feared she was drugged and raped. She was advised to go to a medical lab for a swab and a blood test, which she did.

She says she also texted Michael, asking him if they had sex. She says he responded that he wouldn't do anything to hurt her.

Our sources say Michael, now an analyst at NFL Network, tells a very different story. He says he was out at a bar with a group of people, including the woman, until around 4:30 AM March 21, when he returned to his hotel and she followed. Michael says he had an early flight, was in the room for only 15 minutes and had no sexual contact with the woman. He also says another male was present.

The former Miami Hurricanes and Dallas Cowboys star was previously accused of sexual assault in 2007, although no charges were ever brought forth. A civil lawsuit was settled out of court in 2011.

Irvin is currently an analyst for NFL Network.
