Bucs QB Facing Lawsuit For Groping Uber Driver

posted by Jessi Minneci - 

A professional Florida football player is finding himself in some hot water.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston is facing a lawsuit for groping an Uber driver in Arizona.  

That incident in March 2016 prompted the NFL to suspend Winston for the first three games of the regular season after its investigation found that he had touched the woman in an inappropriate and sexual manner.  

The suit, filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona, alleges that Wintson was "belligerent" and "leaned toward [her] and placed his fingers between her legs and pressed them firmly against her vagina over her yoga pants" while waiting in a drive-thru line in Scottsdale, Ariz., in March 2016.

It also states that Winston "issued a hollow apology" in July and "has a history of sexually hostile behavior and appears to be no closer to understanding the impact of his conduct."

The driver filed suit, seeking in excess of $75-thousand in damages.

Winston is set to return from his suspension following the team's Week 3 matchup, though he is expected to remain sidelined.
