NFL Security is in New Orleans conducting its own investigation into an incident in which Saints pass rusher Cam Jordan was accused of patting a woman on the buttocks at a nightclub last fall, multiple sources said Tuesday.
The league’s investigators are scheduled to meet with Jordan– who was never charged with a crime despite the accusation — and local law enforcement. A source said it would be a surprise if any punishment is handed down and it is standard operating procedure for the league to look into all allegations.
The six-year NFL veteran was accused of touching a woman’s rear end at the Warehouse District club Republic early in the morning of Sept. 6. Jordan was also accused of dangling the woman’s boyfriend in the air in the club’s bathroom and taunting him.
After reviewing the case, both police and prosecutors declined to pursue a misdemeanor battery charge against the player.
Jordan led the Saints with 10 quarterback sacks during their 7-9 season last year. He appeared in his second career Pro Bowl after the end of the campaign.
