Attorney Tony Buzbee to hold press conference on Deshaun Watson allegations Tuesday

On Friday, the Houston Police Department confirmed it opened an investigation into Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, who has been alleged to have committed sexual assault and misconduct by at least 21 women via civil lawsuits. Attorney Tony Buzbee is representing the 21 plaintiffs and, per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, hasn't yet responded to the HPD statement but announced he'll hold a press conference in Houston on Tuesday.

"Our team will hold an in-person press conference at our Houston office on the 73rd floor of Chase Tower downtown Houston, Texas, on Tuesday at noon," reads the caption of Buzbee's Instagram post. "This press conference will address important and significant developments in the Deshaun Watson case. We will take a few questions, but only from those present, and we will also distribute information to those assembled. We will, of course, live stream the press conference here on this platform. For those that attend, security will be strict; if you have no press credentials, you won’t attend." 

Last week, Texans general manager Nick Caserio said the allegations against the 25-year-old star signal-caller are "certainly troubling." Watson has denied any wrongdoing but could face punishment through the NFL's personal conduct policy even if civil and criminal cases go nowhere.
