A transgender New Yorker has filed a $10 million sex assault suit against an NFL player – and in a separate action is also suing the city, saying she was abused and humiliated by cops.Angelina Mavilia’s legal action against San Francisco 49ers cornerback Eric Green alleges he forcibly sodomized her. 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 the local case, Mavilia says she was dehumanized after being arrested for trespassing in a Manhattan housing complex on Oct. 30, 2008. A female cop twice demanded she take off her bra and panties and then peered at her genitals, according to court papers filed in Manhattan Federal Court.
“It’s a girl!” the cop is claimed to have yelled. At Manhattan Central Booking, a correction officer ordered Mavilia to strip yet again and put her in a cell with a man.
“You’re not fooling me; I know you were not born a woman,” the officer allegedly mocked. “I can see your plastic surgery.”
Mavilia declined to comment on both cases Wednesday night. Green could not be reached. Green last played with the San Francisco 49ers, but is not currently with a team.
