Jameis Winston has a history of being accused of some bad things (including sexual abuse) and now he's being accused of groping a female Uber Driver. 

"The woman accuses Winston of grabbing her crotch while driving him in Scottsdale, Arizona, in March 2016, according to a story published by BuzzFeed News."

The NFL is investigating the matter.

This was the responding statement by Jameis:

"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.

"I am supportive of the national movement to raise awareness and develop better responses to the concerns of parties who find themselves in these types of situations, but this accusation is false. While I am certain that I did not make any inappropriate contact, I don't want to engage in a battle with the driver, and I regret if my demeanor or presence made her uncomfortable in any way."
