Kentucky State quarterback accused of groping maid

CHICAGO (AP) - A misdemeanor battery charge was filed against a Kentucky State University quarterback accused of groping a housekeeper at a Chicago hotel.

Martez James was arrested prior to Saturday's Chicago Football Classic, where his team played Albany State University at Soldier Field, a game won by the Golden Rams.

Chicago Police spokesman Officer Daniel O'Brien says the 22-year-old senior was released prior to the game, but his mother, Rita James, says her son wasn't allowed to play.

The police report indicates James entered a room where the housekeeper was working and rubbed his body against hers. The woman notified hotel staff and police.

Thorobreds head coach Wayne Dickens wasn't available for comment Monday. But Rita James told the Chicago Tribune she would "put my life on it that's she's lying."
