Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty was being investigated for rape, but the charges were denied.
The Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup last week for the first time in franchise history, but it's not all good news and roses for all the Kings players. Star defenseman Drew Doughty was apparently being investigated for rape, according to TMZ. According to the report, Doughty was in a bar in Hermosa Beach on March 1, and asked a woman to go back to his place and she rejected him in front of his teammates.
We're told ... the alleged victim told police she loudly rejected Doughty in front of his teammates -- calling him an "a**hole" -- and his teammates laughed.
Sources say the girl told police Doughty was embarrassed following the diss -- then wrangled her into a cab, took her home, and raped her.
TMZ notes however that their sources seem to indicate that the District Attorney's office will reject the case due to lack of evidence and that law enforcement has "major issues with the woman's credibility."
