NFL investigating Saints DE Cameron Jordan for alleged incident

NEW ORLEANS -- The NFL is investigating New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan's involvement in an alleged nightclub altercation last year, a source confirmed.

The investigation, which was first reported by the New Orleans Advocate, is standard protocol under the league's personal conduct policy and does not necessarily indicate that Jordan will face any discipline. Jordan, 26, was not charged in the incident.

The Advocate reported that league investigators were in New Orleans and were scheduled to meet with Jordan and local law enforcement.

Both the New Orleans Police Department and the New Orleans District Attorney's office decided not to pursue charges after reviewing the case. According to the police report, Jordan was accused of accosting a man and lifting him in the air in a bathroom and spraying champagne on the man and his girlfriend in the early-morning hours of Sept. 6.

Other media outlets reported that Jordan was also accused of patting the female on the buttocks. A video obtained by WWL-TV showed Jordan exchanging words with the couple and later spraying the champagne toward them, though it was unclear if he ever made physical contact with the female.

Jordan's attorneys called the allegations "ridiculous" and dismissed the accuser as a "jealous boyfriend."

Jordan did not directly deny the allegations, but he pointed to his attorneys' statement.
