Bills Matt Araiza and 2 other soccer players accused of gang-raping teenager
Buffalo Bills punter Matt Ariza has been charged
with participating in the gang rape of a teenager last year
over two other football players at San Diego State University.
Ariza denied the allegation. "The facts of the incident are not
what have been portrayed in the lawsuit or the press," he said in a statement
shared on Twitter Friday evening by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
The complaint said there were at least three other men in the room,
including Leonard and Ivalico. It alleged that the teenager regained consciousness
and collapsed during the rape, but added "She remembers moments of the horrific gang rape."
