DENVER (AP) - A court document released Friday is revealing details of why Denver Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox was arrested last fall on sexual assault charges.
A woman tells officers she was likely drugged, raped and impregnated with the football player's child after going to his
apartment with friends on Sept. 6. According to the arrest warrant
affidavit, she said she wasn't sure anyone had sex with her until she learned she was pregnant.
The affidavit said the woman was shocked when the DNA results came back on Nov. 29 indicating Cox was the father.
An attorney for the accuser says his client's "victimization will be made clear in a court of law."
Cox's lawyer declined to comment on any of the information in the affidavit, but says he's hopeful the legal process works. Cox's trial is scheduled for October.
