No settlement expected in case involving Lions player
No settlement of any type is in the works regarding an alleged incident involving a Detroit Lions player at a Plymouth bar.
Jay Colvin, the player's attorney, told MLive.com that his client is adamant that the event never occurred.
A 22-year-old woman accused the player of "inappropriate contact" during the early morning hours of Jan. 4 at the Ironwood Grill in Plymouth.
Plymouth police Chief Al Cox told The Associated Press on Wednesday his department has turned over the investigation's findings to the Wayne County prosecutor's office. A spokeswoman there, Maria Miller, said the office is reviewing a warrant request.
The decision could take days or weeks.
"We're confident a warrant will be denied. If the matter were to become a civil action we would counter-sue for defamation,'' Colvin told Mlive.com.
Cox wouldn't identify the player in question, but said he has been "totally co-operative" and "made himself very available" during the investigation.
