CNN was able to get a vague response from Miami police concerning an investigation into the allegations. McGregor’s attorney receives a letter from an unnamed woman who claims that McGregor s*xually assaulted and battered her in a VIP men’s toilet at the Kaseya Center, where the fight took place.
According to the letter, McGregor also kidnapped the woman and traumatized her in the process. McGregor’s representatives told CNN in a statement: “The allegations are false. Mr. McGregor will not be intimidated.”
According to the attorney’s letters sent to the NBA, the Miami Heat, and the Kaseya Center, all three organizations were complicit in the claimed s*xual assault and battery, as well as the purported kidnapping.

CNN quoted NBA spokesman Mike Bass as saying, “We are aware of the allegations and are working with the team to gather more information.” on Thursday.
When CNN contacted Miami police, they verified that they are looking after an allegation from June 11. Police spokesman Michael Vega stated in a statement, “This is an open investigation so no additional information can be released at this time.”
The Miami Heat have been made aware of the allegations but have decided to wait to comment until after an inquiry has been conducted.
