An attorney for Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey issued a statement Tuesday saying neither Pouncey nor his brother, Mike, were involved in an altercation early Saturday morning at a Miami Beach nightclub.
"It appears that the accuser is an opportunist seeking attention and possible financial gain," Jeff Ostrow said in the statement.
A man and a women told police they were assaulted at Cameo nightclub, where the Pounceys were the hosts of a party.
"Any attempt by the accuser or anyone else to bring an action against them based upon these false allegations will be vigorously defended," Ostrow said. "If the accuser continues to perpetuate these lies, we will bring an action against him.
Neither player has been charged by the Miami Beach police.
