BOSTON (AP) -Lawyers for Randy Moss and the woman who accused him of battery agreed to extend a temporary restraining order she obtained against the New England Patriots wide receiver, his agent said Monday.
A court hearing was scheduled in Broward County in Florida for Monday at Rachelle Washington's request for a permanent restraining order. The temporary order required Moss to stay at least 500 feet from Washington. They described each other as longtime friends.
David McGill, Washington's attorney, did not return calls seeking comment.
Moss is in Arizona preparing for the Super Bowl on Sunday against the New York Giants. He has denied the accusation by Washington that he committed ``battery causing serious injury'' to her at her Florida home Jan. 6.
``The restraining order will be continued by agreement of the attorneys,'' Tim DiPiero, Moss' agent, said in a statement. ``The parties won't be there.''
Moss' attorney, Richard Sharpstein, said he would appear at the hearing on his client's behalf and agree to the extension of the restraining order until both parties can appear in court or the matter is resolved
``We have no contest over the restraining order given the current situation. He will stay completely away from her and has no desire to have contact with her,'' Sharpstein said. ``He's in Phoenix busy preparing to win the Super Bowl and on a day like today his mind is elsewhere.''
