Woman Files Suit Against Former Trojan Nick Young

A woman–choosing to identify herself only as Jane Doe–has filed a lawsuit Tuesday against Philadelphia 76ers and former Trojan basketball player Nick Young, whom she claims drugged her at a West Hollywood Bar and later had non-consensual with her according to the LA Daily News.

The woman has also named the Crown Bar in the lawsuit. Her allegations include sexual battery and false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence.

According to the plaintiff, she and a friend were at the Crown Bar on Aug. 12, 2011, when Young approached them and offered them drinks. The plaintiff said in her suit that she knew Young from two prior meetings.

“Plaintiff accepted and consumed a champagne beverage that had been offered to her by … Young,” who paid for the drink with a credit card, the suit alleges.

After having that drink, Jane Doe claims to not remember what happened the rest of the evening, but believes she was taken by Young to his apartment, where he had sex with her.

According to the LA Daily News, the following things happened in the days after the alleged incident:

When the plaintiff awoke and asked Young why the two of them were naked in his apartment, he replied that the two began having sex the previous night but that they stopped after she passed out, according to the suit, which says Young complied when the woman demanded that he take her home.
Subsequent tests confirmed that she was given GHB, according to the suit, which says she also underwent exams at the UCLA Santa Monica Rape Treatment Center that revealed anal and rectal bleeding.

In addition, the woman has undergone psychiatric evaluations and treatment, according to the suit, which alleges that Crown Bar employees failed to provide enough security and to properly monitor the behavior of guests.

Neither Young nor the 76ers have issued a statement addressing the suit as of Tuesday night.
