Lawsuit Filed Against Nick Young for Alleged Date Rape

Lawsuit Filed Against Nick Young for Alleged Date Rape

A woman has filed a lawsuit seeking unspecified damages from Sixers guard Nick Young as well as a West Hollywood bar for an incident that took place in the summer of 2011 in Los Angeles.

The suit alleges that the woman accepted a glass of champagne from Young at a bar and after drinking it, does not remember what happened next and eventually woke up naked at Young's apartment.

CBS Los Angeles has more on the lawsuit:

When the plaintiff woke up the next morning and asked Young why the two of them were naked in his apartment, he reportedly replied that the two began having sex the previous night, but that they had stopped when she passed out, according to the suit. Court papers also suggest that Young complied when the woman demanded that he take her home.

Ensuing tests later confirmed that the woman had been given GHB, according to the suit, which also says that she underwent exams at the UCLA Santa Monica Rape Treatment Center, which revealed anal and rectal bleeding.

This is the latest in bad news regarding a Philadelphia athlete. Earlier in the day we learned of Eagles RB Shady McCoy being hit with a suit for allegedly assaulting a woman and leaving her on the side of the New Jersey Turnpike.

Young was not a member of the 76ers in 2011.

Joel Embiid explains the reasoning behind his new hairstyle

Joel Embiid explains the reasoning behind his new hairstyle

Joel Embiid said plenty with his words on Tuesday afternoon when he called the decision to have a minutes restriction in the teens to begin the season "f-----g BS."

He also sent a message with his fresh new look.

Jojo showed up to practice on the eve of the Sixers' season with a new hairstyle -- some cornrows remeniscent of the last great Sixer to captivate the city of Philadelphia.

No, not Andrew Bynum.

We're talking about Allen Iverson.

"I had the old hairstyle for a long time so I just wanted something new," Embiid said. "I know my mom won't be happy but it's only for a couple of days."

Robert Covington saw a resemblance, "Everybody was shocked. Told him he’s going to be the new AI.”

Was he inspired by somebody? Anybody?

"I just wanted something new, something crazy. I never do anything crazy, so..."

"I think it looks okay," Embiid, always his toughest critic, said.
