Central Florida News-Talk Radio 580 in Orlando reports that Randy Moss has been hit with a “temporary injunction for protection against dating violence.”
The story has been posted and pulled from their web site at least twice last night and this morning. The picture that they posted on Moss appears to have been taken from his arrest back when he was still with the Vikings. It apparently was the only picture they could find of him.
Reporter Rozzie Franco made a bizarre appearance on WEEI’s Dennis and Callahan this morning. She staked her claim early, that she was the one who broke this story, and she was hesitant to share any details, telling D&C that they would need to do their own “legwork” on this one.
Mike Reiss has the statement from Moss on this issue, with Moss claiming he “never put my hand on one woman, physically or in an angry manner” in his entire life, and also included the following:
All I know is that it’s a friend of mine, a young lady, it was an accident where she hurt herself, to where they called me, called my attorneys, trying to get X amount of dollars out of me, and if ‘we don’t get X amount of dollars’ they were going to go to the press before this game.
Seems like a pretty strange situation all around. We’ll see where the media takes it. I’m leaning towards them blowing it incredibly out of proportion before all the facts are known, and that all the talk about how this (generated by them) will be a potential distraction for the team this week, and acting as if Moss has already been arrested. Maybe I’m wrong. We’ll see.
