According to Jordan, Spillman invited a woman he met in another city to meet with him in Dallas soon after he signed with the Cowboys in September 2014. Spillman and the woman, whose name had not been broadcast publicly, reportedly went to the Gaylord Texan Resorts and Convention Center where Spillman had been temporarily staying.
A report from the Grapevine Police Department showed that the incident allegedly took place on Sept. 20, 2014, between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m.
