Woman Sues Nick Young For Alleged 2011 Rape; Cops Skeptical

A California woman has filed suit in Los Angeles Superior Court alleging that in 2011 Nick Young drugged her in a California bar, brought her back to his apartment and raped her. Young was a member of the Wizards at the time of the allegations. [Update: According to TMZ, the LAPD had dismissed her claims before she filed suit.]

According to the suit, the woman's memory of the evening ends shortly after Young bought her a drink. She believes he slipped GHB, the date rape drug, in her drink. She woke up the following morning in Young's bed bleeding from her vagina and rectum. The suit alleges Young admitted they had sex but said he stopped when she passed out.

According to the suit, the woman demanded to be taken home by Young — he obliged — and she beelined for the UCLA Santa Monica Rape Treatment Center, where she took a rape kit and was tested for STDs. She claims a test at the center confirmed she had been drugged, and determined the injuries to her vagina and rectum were consistent with rape.


Among the allegations made against Young are sexual battery, sexual assault, false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

Update: From TMZ:

She's filed a civil lawsuit, but now we're learning shortly after the alleged incident, she went to LAPD cops who dismissed her claim because her story didn't make sense. What's more ... law enforcement says at the time she went to cops, she was already talking about a lawsuit, and that made them even more suspicious.
