Deshaun Watson is now under investigation by the Houston Police Department.
On Friday, the Houston police announced an individual went to the department with a complaint against the Houston Texans star quarterback which sparked the investigation.
Watson is currently facing 21 civil lawsuits for sexual misconduct.
“Today, a complainant filed a report with the Houston Police Department concerning Deshaun Watson,” the police said in a statement on social media. “As with any allegation, the Houston Police Department is now conducting an investigation and will not comment further during the investigation process.”
The NFL commented on the allegations saying, “We are continuing to monitor all developments in the matter which remains under review of the Personal Conduct Policy.”
Deshaun Watson has adamantly denied any wrongdoing and attorney Rusty Hardin says the NFL star and his legal team welcome the investigation and will fully cooperate.
“We welcome this long-overdue development,” Hardin said in a statement. “Now we will learn the identity of at least one accuser. We will fully cooperate with the Houston Police Department.”
