When the Baltimore Ravens thought that things could not get any worse for them especially this time, the team's senior director of security was charged on Tuesday with sex offense.

A Reuters report said that Darren Sanders was summoned by the police for "sex offense in the fourth degree" for an incident that happened last Dec. 14.

According to the Baltimore Sun, Sanders was particularly accused of groping a stadium worker and forcing himself against her after one home game for the team.

The same article also noted that the 34-year-old victim also filed a peace order against the security senior director. Court documents revealed that the woman asked for the police's help to the stadium on the said night and noted that she was escorted by a man identified as the head of security.

The victim told investigators that Sanders groped her buttocks while they walked along the hallway, kissed her on the neck and tried to make her touch his genitals. The police said a witness confirmed seeing a part of the victim's claim.

Sanders' lawyer Andrew Alperstein, when asked for a reaction, told the Baltimore Sun that the claim was "totally fabricated and made up."

"It does a disservice to real victims when people make things up like this. People like [Sanders] are susceptible to made-up allegations. It puts you in a vulnerable position," the lawyer added.

The Baltimore Sun noted that as the investigation on the case is ongoing, Sander has already been placed on a paid leave rendering him unable to travel with the Ravens to Pittsburgh where they will go against the Steelers on Saturday.

This is not the first time that the security head has been involved in criminal charges like this as reports noted that the retired city homicide detective was charged in 2004 for accidentally firing his gun inside the auditorium at the University of Maryland and was made to pay a $100 fine for the act.

The NFL security department said in the Baltimore Sun article that they have already received information on the incident and noted that they are already looking how the league's personal conduct policy will apply in this case.

If proven guilty, Sanders will be punished with a 1 year hail time or a $1,000 fine or receive both penalties.

This recent incident is another hit on the record of the Ravens who recently just been involved in the controversy involving Ray Rice who was caught on video hitting his own wife inside a casino elevator. The incident blew up as Rice was initially just given suspension as a form of punishment as the NFL noted that they never got a copy of the video showing what really happened inside the elevator.
