Although the act was captured on camera, police said they wouldn't immediately release video or documentation.
A spokesperson for Kraft says the NFL owner denies the allegations. "We categorically deny that Mr. Kraft engaged in any illegal activity. Because it is a judicial matter, we will not be commenting further," a representative of the team said.
