Former NFL player Eric Green accused of sodomy

Transgender New Yorker Angelina Mavilia has filed a lawsuit against former NFL player Eric Green (right), alleging forced sodomy. She's suing for $10 million.

The two met in a Scottsdale, Ariz., casino in early 2009 when Green still played for the Arizona Cardinals, the 38-year-old East Side woman says in papers filed in federal court in Florida, where Green was born and lives.

They went back to his condo, where Green, 27, assaulted her, she charges. He then got "extremely agitated and threatening," according to court documents, and warned: "This never happened. You'd better not tell."

In an unrelated case, Mavilia is also suing the City of New York for alleged humiliation at the hands of police officers.
