Tate brothers brought in for further questioning

STORY: Tate, his brother Tristan and two Romanian female suspects have been in police custody since Dec. 29 pending an ongoing criminal investigation on charges of forming a criminal gang to sexually exploit women, accusations they deny.

"Everybody knows I'm innocent," Tate told reporters as he was brought in for further questioning by anti-organized crime prosecutors, the first comments to the media since his arrest.

"Ask the police what evidence they have against me," Tristan Tate told reporters.

On Thursday (January 17), a Romanian court extended their detention until February 27.
