HERMOSA BEACH, CALIF. (AP) - Police are investigating date rape allegations against Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty stemming from an encounter with a woman at a Southern California seaside bar.
Doughty’s attorney Craig Renetzky confirmed Tuesday that Hermosa Beach police were investigating the woman’s sexual assault allegations against Doughty, and said the District Attorney’s office is expected to decide this week whether to file charges.
Renetzky says the investigation into the alleged incident has been ongoing for a number of months. He would give no further details.
Phone and email messages left for a police spokesman and with a Kings spokesman weren’t immediately returned.
Doughty is among the Kings‘ highest paid players after signing a new contract earlier in the season. The 22-year-old had two goals and four assists during the team’s recent victory over the New Jersey Devils in the Stanley Cup finals.
