*Although he’s an NFL quarterback, Jameis Winston still has a tendency to act like an immature idiot at the wrong time. One of those wrong times netted him a sexual battery lawsuit lawsuit from an Uber driver.
Well, it looks like Winston has “reached an agreement” to settle the lawsuit, which was filed in Arizona, according to court docs filed in U.S. District Court.
As previously reported, the Uber driver claimed she picked up a drunk Winston from the Scottsdale bar scene in 2016 … and during the ride, he reached over and grabbed her vagina over her yoga pants.
Two years later, the woman — who goes by “Kate P.” in legal docs — filed suit against the Tampa Bay Bucs quarterback.
In new docs filed in federal court in Arizona on Nov. 26, the woman’s lawyer says “Plaintiff has reached an agreement with Defendant to resolve her claims.”
“The parties are in the process of finalizing a settlement agreement but need approximately 10 days to complete this process.”
The terms of the settlement were not disclosed in the court docs, reports TMZ. The site says it reached out to Winston’s camp for comment, so far no word back.
For his part, Jameis has previously publicly apologized to the Uber driver and claims he has “eliminated alcohol from my life.”
The news of the settlement was first reported by the Tampa Bay Times.
