Former Cardinals defensive back Eric Green, a member of the Super Bowl XLIII team, has been slapped with a lawsuit claiming that the four-year NFL player forcibly sodomized a transgender New York resident, according to the New York Daily News.
The plaintiff contends in papers filed in Florida, where Green resides, that Green “forcibly sodomized” her at Green’s apartment in early 2009. The two allegedly met in a Scottsdale, Arizona casino.
The plaintiff has filed a separate action against New York City alleging that police humiliated and abused her during an October 2008 arrest for trespassing.
Though the Daily News says that Green is still a member of the 49ers, he was cut after the preseason. Per our friends at Rotoworld, Green also was released by the Dolphins in September, and he was out of football in 2009.
