Jameis Winston Accused Of Groping Uber Driver In 2016; NFL Investigating

The NFL is investigating troubling allegations against Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston.

In a report from Buzzfeed on Friday, it was revealed that Winston is being accused of groping an Uber driver, identified as Kate, last year in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The driver claims Winston “reached over and he just grabbed my crotch” while waiting in line to get food at a Mexican restaurant.

Buzzfeed has been able to independently confirm many parts of the woman’s story, including a complaint sent to Uber shortly following the ride. Uber told Buzzfeed that Winston’s account was banned from their service.

The complaint to Uber read in part, “this rider reached over and put his fingers on my crotch. It wasn’t my stomach or my thigh, it was my crotch and I want to be clear about that.”

Winston was previously in the headlines for a highly-publicized case in 2013. When Winston was a star at Florida State, he was accused of raping a female student. Eventually, the university reached a settlement with the woman, Erica Kinsman.
