Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman David Irving denied allegations of domestic violence and failed drug tests levied against him Monday morning when his girlfriend hacked his Twitter account. 

The tweets have since been deleted but the messages have been preserved, per Scott Sidway of WBAP:

"As y'all can clearly see. She has her hair lol. She did this exact same thing at Iowa State," Irving wrote later. "I call the cops , but being dark , and we'll huge , I'm always the one who's in trouble . She's a MmA fighter , bad attitude , and she uses my position against me."

The woman later seemingly regained access to Irving's Twitter account to refute his denials.

"Listen to david lies all you want you’ll all see," the woman wrote. "He’s manipulative and a liar. Who moves the mother of their child to Texas wit no family just to beat her up and put her in the streets no clothes no shoes. And wait till y’all find out about his failed drug tests."

She then wrote she's willing to talk to "all the reporters willing to listen" but Irving broke her phone.

"I can back my words up with evidence video pictures audio etc.," she said. "His lies will never prevail."

She would later issue a statement retracting the domestic violence claims, via Jori Epstein of the Dallas Morning News:

Jobin Panicker of WFAA shared confirmation from the Frisco police department that it is investigating the claims against Irving:

Irving said she stole one of his old iPhones, and he has changed the locks in his house.

"I thought she hacked my Twitter but it was my email and Facebook and iCloud. So I'm doing quite a lot of work fixing all this," Irving wrote.

Irving, 24, has spent the last three seasons with the Cowboys. He signed a restricted free-agent tender earlier this offseason.
