Bernie's reps issue denial

After mentioning the complaint filed against former New York Yankee Bernie Williams in this morning's notebook, I received a letter from John Reilly, vice president/music of the publicity firm Rogers & Cowan.

Here it is.

Statement From Bernie Williams’ Manager Steve Fortunato

Yesterday evening we learned of the filing of a complaint against Mr. Bernie Williams. The news has taken us all by surprise.  On the night in question, Mr. Williams had gone out after accepting an invitation to be a guest performer with a local music act.  Mr. Williams denies any wrongdoing and we feel that some published media reports today are inaccurate.  At this time, Mr. Williams has been advised by his legal counsel, José M. Marxuach, to not make any further comments, inasmuch as we do not want to interfere with the ongoing investigation.  We want to assure everyone that Mr. Williams will fully cooperate with the local authorities to have this matter clarified as soon as possible.
