“The NFL plans to suspend Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston for three games over an incident in which he was accused of groping an Uber driver, ESPN reported.
The driver told BuzzFeed Winston “just grabbed my crotch” and kept his hand there for several seconds as they waited in a drive-through lane at a Mexican restaurant in Scottsdale, Arizona, in March 2016. The quarterback was banned from Uber after the driver filed a complaint with the ride-sharing service. However, no police charges were filed, and Winston has denied the allegations.
Sports Illustrated noted that Winston would stand to forfeit $124,000 in base salary for a three-game penalty, which reportedly would begin the season.”
As a senior in college, Winston allegedly raped a female student – but he was able to pay off his accuser with a million dollar private settlement. He has also been arrested for shoplifting and using derogatory language toward women in public.
That he then went on to sexually assault a female taxi driver merely confirms what we already knew about him – he’s a sexual predator with violent tendencies – and a poster boy for the new “socially conscious” NFL.
