NFL Draft: Gareon Conley denies rape accusations

On Tuesday, reports surfaced about Ohio State cornerback Gareon Conley being accused of raping a woman in a Cleveland hotel earlier this month.

Spokeswoman Kathleen Caffrey of the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office says the alleged April 9 incident is still being investigated by police. Conley's attorney, Kevin Spellacy, told WOIO-TV in Cleveland that the allegations are "ludicrous and ridiculous". The alleged victim claims that Conley asked her to have "a foursome", but that she declined and offered to watch the other couple have sex in the hotel bathroom, according to TMZ Sports. After going out with friends in downtown Cleveland, the woman said, she walked back to the Westin Hotel about 2:45 a.m.

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

The case had remained out of the public eye for two weeks, and Conley had yet to submit to an interview, perhaps an attempt to hold that off until after the draft Thursday.

It was recently reported that the Eagles "love" Conley and would be a likely candidate to nab him in the draft. When police arrived at the Westin, the player had already left.

As for Conley, two of his friends who were at the hotel were interviewed by police and told cops Conley never hooked up with the woman and that she was just mad that she got kicked out of the room.

The woman said once she was in the bathroom, Conley spun the woman around, unbuttoned her trousers and began to have sex with her. He has denied this very serious allegation.

Spellacy told Cleveland.com that he made arrangements with police for Conley to be questioned after the draft. NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that Conley has decided not to attend the draft in Philadelphia. After talking to officers, she was transported a hospital, where a rape kit was administered.

After being propositioned, the victim said she didn't want to take part. She said she told Conley to stop.
