Gareon Conley accused of rape; lawyer denies allegations

Speaking to WOIO-TV in Cleveland, Kevin Spellacy, Conley's attorney, described the allegations as "ludicrous and ridiculous". Conley has not been charged in connection with the alleged incident.

Here is some of the USA TODAY report which details the events of April 9 as best as possible.

Conley is expected to be a first-round draft selection in this week's NFL Draft.

This comes as zero surprise, but on Tuesday, soon after rape allegations against him surfaced, Ohio State cornerback Gareon Conley chose to not attend the 2017 NFL Draft.

McShay also said Florida defensive tackle Caleb Brantley was charged with battery after a woman told police he had punched her, and both MI safety Jabrill Peppers and Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster tested positive for diluted urine samples at the combine.

According to the report, police attempted to interview the woman at the hospital, where a rape kit was administered, but she declined and "just kept saying she wanted to go home and that her dignity was stripped from her in a matter of minutes". She claims Conley asked her to have a foursome with another friend of his and a woman. [The alleged victim] only said this to Conley to try and avoid having sex with Conley all together.

The woman told police that another man was in in the room with another woman.

Now, though, if Conley wants to preserve his draft status, he needs to immediately get contact the police and interview to attempt to clear his name, if he believes the evidence supports him. No charges have been filed, nor has an arrest warrant been issued for Conley.

Spellacy told Cleveland.com that he made arrangements with police for Conley to be questioned after the draft. The victim told authorities that she had been raped by Conley in a room at the hotel, but Conley was not present at the hotel when officers arrived.

The player's attorney says it all started at the Barley House on West 6th Street, when a group left there to go to the Westin for a hotel room party. She refused to speak to cops after that.

Conley has been accused of raping a woman in a Cleveland hotel and it's now an open investigation within the Cleveland Division of Police Sex Crimes and Child Abuse Unit.
