Lakers Nick Young Asks Judge to Drop Rape Case for Lack of Evidence
Former Philadelphia 76ers star may have switched teams to the LA Lakers, but that doesn’t mean the demons of his past aren’t still following him. Young was accused of drugging and rapping a young woman after meeting at the Crown Bar in West Hollywood according to TMZ. However, there’s a slight twist and Young is adamant that he wasn’t involved in any wrongdoing.
DNA evidence collected from the woman by police doesn’t match Young’s DNA according to documents filed by Young. The police even felt that her story was too shaky, which is why they chose not to pursue any charges against Young. However, that didn’t stop the woman from filing a civil suit against Young. Young is claiming that the woman is just trying to get money out of him, but he isn’t budging. He has asked the judge to throw out the civil suit for lack of evidence.
