MIAMI BEACH, Fla., Oct. 18 (UPI) -- Former NBA star Dennis Rodman is accused of inappropriately touching a woman at a nightclub in Miami Beach, Fla., police said.

Police told The Miami Herald surveillance footage confirms Rodman was in contact with the woman Friday but they would not confirm whether the video shows Rodman grabbing the woman's crotch area as alleged.

The woman, whose name was not reported, insists Rodman, 48, groped her after walking up to her and whispering in her ear early Friday. Rodman, who played for the Chicago Bulls, the Detroit Pistons, the San Antonio Spurs and the Los Angeles Lakers, has denied the woman's allegation.

Rodman's agent, Darren Prince, said his client does not personally know his accuser.

"He thinks it's probably just another woman trying to get money out of him,'' Price told the newspaper.

The Herald said no arrests have been made and an investigation is still being conducted.
