ARLINGTON, TEXAS (AP) - Former NFL great Charles Haley was issued a citation after being accused of slapping a woman on the buttocks during the Dallas Cowboys‘ game against the Miami Dolphins on Thanksgiving.
A police report said the woman found the contact inappropriate and was offended, and that a third party corroborated her accusation.
Police spokeswoman Tiara Richard said Friday that Haley denies the claim, and he faces a choice of either paying a fine or contesting the matter in court. Richard said the woman works at Cowboys Stadium.
A phone call to Haley from The Associated Press was not immediately returned.
