Spillman is accused of assaulting a women at the team’s hotel, which happens to be just a day after Roger Goodell held his press conference about cracking down on players accused of violent crimes. Spillman was allowed to play against the Rams.
“We have a sexual assault report we are investigating at this time, and it does involve C.J. Spillman,” said Sgt. Robert Eberling, a police spokesman. “He is involved in the investigation. We are looking into the matter.”
The Cowboys have yet to hand down any punishment to Spillman for being involved in the incident and his agent, Ron Slavin, declined to discuss the matter.
Spillman, 28, signed a one-year contract with the Cowboys a month ago and has a base salary of $770,000 for the 2014 season. He has appeared in all four games, but has just recorded one tackle this season.
