Sixers’ Nick Young accused of rape
Nick Young is the latest Philadelphia athlete to be sued over assault charges.
The Sixers guard is being accused of sexual assault after a woman filed a civil lawsuit against Young in a Los Angeles court. The suit claims Young drugged and raped her at a Los Angeles bar in 2011. The woman reportedly went to a rape treatment center after the alleged attack and tests showed trace amounts of a date-rape drug in her system.
Young averaged 10.6 points per game last season for the Sixers. He is a free agent and the Sixers aren’t expected to bring him back.
This news comes one day after TMZ reported that Eagles running back LeSean McCoy allegedly assaulted a woman on his party bus, then left her at a rest stop in New Jersey. McCoy has denied the woman’s claim through a representative.
