BALTIMORE (AP) — Court documents say the Baltimore Ravens' security director is accused of groping a woman and pressing up against her at the team's stadium after a December game.
Charging documents filed in Baltimore City District Court say 48-year-old Darren Sanders is also accused of kissing the 34-year-old woman's neck and attempting to force her to grab his genitals.
Ravens senior vice president Kevin Byrne said Wednesday that Sanders has been placed on paid leave, per the NFL's personal conduct policy. He isn't with the team and won't travel to Pittsburgh for the Ravens' playoff game Saturday night.
Sanders' lawyers say he denies the allegations.
Court documents say the woman worked at M&T Bank Stadium and was asked to escort Sanders to another part of the building several hours after the Ravens beat the Jaguars on Dec. 14.
