Rodriguez had also accused her of "stalking" him and of trying to break into his Florida home. A Miami Beach Police spokesman said Roberts did not try to break into Rodriguez's home.Roberts denied that and other allegations in interviews Monday on MLB Network and Tuesday on Dan Patrick's radio show, saying she did nothing wrong in her pursuit of comment late last week.
"The allegations made by Alex Rodriguez are absurd," Roberts told MLB Network.
Roberts, who co-authored with David Epstein the Sports Illustrated article disclosing Rodriguez's positive tests for performance-enhancing drugs in 2003, has a forthcoming book on the Yankees third baseman."A-Rod: The Many Lives of Alex Rodriguez" is scheduled for April 14 release by HarperCollins.
