FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Police in Florida are investigating sexual battery allegations made by a woman against former NFL star and Dallas Cowboys great Michael Irvin.

Fort Lauderdale police confirmed Wednesday that the Hall of Fame receiver's name was listed on a sexual battery incident report.

The report says the alleged encounter involving Irvin took place at a Fort Lauderdale hotel on March 22. 

A police spokeswoman said no other details were available. Irvin has not been charged with anything.

An attorney for Irvin did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

The 51-year-old Irvin starred for the University of Miami and the Cowboys.

Irvin played for the Cowboys for 12 years and won three Super Bowls with Dallas.

He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2007 and has worked as an analyst on the NFL Network.

In 2011, Irvin settled a woman's lawsuit accusing him of sexual assault.
