HOUSTON – A police complaint has been filed Thursday against Houston Texans star Deshaun Watson, the Houston Police Department announced.
A total of 21 lawsuits have been filed so far against Watson.
As part of the statement posted on social media, Houston police said, “Houston Police Department is now conduction an investigation and will not comment further during the investigative process.”
The complaint comes one day after Rusty Hardin and Tony Buzbee went toe-to-toe in statements about the case.
On March 20, Buzbee, who represents the women suing Watson, announced affidavits and other evidence would be handed over to HPD for investigation.
Buzbee released the following statement on Friday:
Now that HPD has confirmed such via Twitter, I will also confirm that a complaint was filed with HPD this morning regarding Deshaun Watson. I was not personally involved in the process, as I previously indicated I would not be. I can confirm, from the reports that I’ve received, that HPD personnel was extremely professional, thorough, and compassionate.
