Police Investigate Assault Allegations Against Spitzer

(CNN) Police are investigating allegations that former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer attacked a woman.

Two law enforcement sources say she told police Spitzer choked her at New York's Plaza Hotel Saturday. She said it happened in his hotel room, where two of them went after spending some time at the bar.

The 25-year-old woman also told police she and Spitzer knew each other before this incident. The sources say police are investigating the incident as a *possible* assault case.

A spokeswoman for Spitzer denied the assault accusation.

There is no truth to the allegation," spokeswoman Lisa Linden said.
