Tuesday was a popular day for local athletes to be sued for assaulting a woman.
Now, a report from TMZ is calling the accuser's claims into question and using words like "crazy" and "unbelievable" in its headline.
She's filed a civil lawsuit, but now we're learning shortly after the alleged incident, she went to LAPD cops who dismissed her claim because her story didn't make sense. What's more ... law enforcement says at the time she went to cops, she was already talking about a lawsuit, and that made them even more suspicious.
We're told the woman subsequently made financial demands on Nick -- to either pay up or face a lawsuit.
