Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston has released a statement in response to allegations that he groped a female Uber driver during a ride in Scottsdale, Arizona in March 2016. In the report by BuzzFeed News, Winston is accused of grabbing the driver’s crotch while waiting for food at a drive-thru restaurant. Winston denied that accusation in a statement posted to social media on Friday afternoon. “A news organization has published a story about me regarding an alleged incident involving a female Uber driver from approximately two years ago. The story falsely accuses me of making inappropriate contact with this driver. I believe the driver was confused as to the number of passengers in the car and who was sitting next to her. The accusation is false, and given the nature of the allegation and increased awareness and consideration of these types of matters, I am addressing this false report immediately. At the time of the alleged incident, I denied the allegations to Uber, yet they still decided to suspend my account.
