While Warren told police that he was trying to help the victim out of bed and she fell, his girlfriend has a completely different story.

Warren came to his own defense while speaking with authorities according to TMZ, as the sports figure says he just wanted her to leave because he was, “expecting company.”
Sapp, who serves as a talking head for the NFL Network, was in Miami for tomorrow’s play off game between the New Orleans Saints and the Indianapolis Colts.
