Los Angeles Lakers: Assault Charges Against Nick Young Dropped

A woman has agreed to drop three out of the seven charges brought up against Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young. The woman claimed back in 2011 that she, and Young, had non-consensual sex after Young had bought her some several drinks.

Back in 2013, the women filed the lawsuit to the Superior Court in Los Angeles against Young and the Crown Bar, but her lawyers filed a modified complaint a month later to which the bar was no longer a defendant.  The Crown Bar, located at 7321 Santa Monica Blvd. at Greenacre Drive, has since closed and has been replaced by the Harlowe bar.

Last month Young’s lawyer, Steve Cochran, filed court papers asking that the woman’s claims for assault, sexual assault and false imprisonment be dismissed. The women who filed the charges against Nick Young, Jane Doe, accused Young, in a revised lawsuit, of battery, sexual battery, assault, sexual assault, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence.

Doe also alleges that Young or “some third party” made her unconscious by giving her alcohol and/or drugs at the Crown Bar on Aug. 12, 2011. At the time of the alleged crime, Young was a player for the Philadelphia 76ers.

When the plaintiff awoke and asked Young why the two of them were naked in his apartment, he replied that the two began having sex the previous night but that they stopped after she passed out. According to the suit, Young complied when the woman demanded that he take her home.
