Stefon Diggs‘ flashy Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon was found abandoned near train tracks in Miami over the weekend, TMZ Sports has learned … but the NFL star is denying any wrongdoing in the situation.
Here’s the deal … law enforcement officials tell us they responded to a call of an abandoned vehicle sitting in dirt just feet from train tracks near the Miami Airport Station in Florida at around 5 AM on Sunday.
According to officials, the car — a silver Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV with Maryland license plates — was registered to Diggs.
But, authorities say there was no indication of the Buffalo Bills receiver, a driver OR passengers on the scene … so after a short investigation, they simply had the vehicle towed.
The entire situation is bizarre … especially given the Mercedes’ six-figure price tag — but when we reached out to Diggs’ camp for comment, they had a simple explanation.
According to a spokesperson for the wideout, Diggs was not in Florida at the time, and had lent the car to a friend in the area.
That friend, the spokesperson said, got a flat tire, called for a tow, but did not wait for the company to arrive and left the ride at the scene.
“[Stefon] was not driving the car,” Diggs’ rep says. “He allowed a friend to use the car while he was gone. Unfortunately, the friend had got a flat tire with the car.”
The rep says Diggs was eventually informed of the situation and is now having the car repaired at a Mercedes-Benz dealership.
Diggs’ spokesperson was adamant the car was NOT stolen, and added there was absolutely no wrongdoing involved in the incident.
Cops, meanwhile, say a report on the abandoned car is still pending. It’s unclear if police are investigating further into it.
Diggs — who’s been known to train in Miami to prepare for NFL seasons — had a career year in Buffalo in 2020, logging 127 catches for 1,535 receiving yards and 8 TDs.
