Michael Irvin has been accused of rape.

The former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver is at the center of a civil lawsuit filed this week in Broward Circuit Court, as first reported by The Miami Herald.

An anonymous woman, identified as "Jane Doe" in the documents, claims Irvin sexually assaulted her in 2007 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.

She says the attack took place late on July 4 or early on July 5; and details an evening that started with Irvin buying her alcohol and then taking her to his hotel room, where the Hall of Famer allegedly raped her and another man forced her to perform oral sex.

The lawsuit also claims Irvin's brother, Derrick Irvin, "assisted in covering the sexual assault and rape up."

Irvin's lawyer, Larry Friedman, refers to the accusations as "totally untrue."

Local police were informed of the alleged incident on July 20, 2007 and spokesman Gary Bitner told the newspaper:

"They investigated it thoroughly. Although by that time there was no longer any forensic evidence or surveillance video," while the woman signed a "waiver of prosecution," which Bitner descibed as "her desire to essentially put it behind her and not have it be splashed all over the newspapers."

Irvin has worked as an analyst for the NFL Network and hosted an ESPN Radio show for the past few years.

The football star has been involved with the police before. In 1996, he pleased no contest to cocaine possession; in 2000 and 2005, he was arrested on more drug charges. Irvin actually competed on season nine of Dancing with the Stars, as well.
