Brooklyn Nets' Andray Blatche Taken into Custody, Questioned in Philadelphia

Some ugly news out of the Four Seasons Hotel on the parkway, as the Brooklyn Nets' Andray Blatche was one of three men taken into custody overnight and questioned by police in connection with a possible sexual assault, according to a report from NBC10.

Per the report:

Police tell NBC10 that a 21-year-old woman was taken from the Four Seasons Hotel on 18th and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway to a local hospital just before 4 a.m. The woman told police she was sexually assaulted by someone inside the hotel, according to investigators.

Police say Blatche, a 26-year-old power forward/center on the Brooklyn Nets, was in the hotel suite at the time of the alleged incident but was not in the bedroom where it may have occurred.

The Nets are in town to play the Sixers at the Wells Fargo Center at 7 p.m. tonight.

Blatche, who was amnestied by the Washington Wizards last offseason, is averaging 11 points and six rebounds in 20 minutes per game for the Nets.

NBC also wrote out a tweet from Blatche, which read, "I'm ok and I didn't do anything. Just was in the area when it happened," but that tweet has since been deleted.

It's been replaced with:
