Citing insufficient evidence, Los Angeles County prosecutors declined to file sexual assault charges Wednesday against L.A. Kings player Drew Doughty, who was investigated by Hermosa Beach police in connection with a sexual assault allegation.
The allegations date to March 1, when a 25-year-old woman met Doughty at a bar near the Hermosa Beach Pier. She turned down a proposition from Doughty in front of several teammates, police said.
They took a cab to her home, where she accused Doughty of raping her. The woman reported the incident to police the same day. According to the filing declination, the woman told police the two had consensual sex a few months prior to the incident.
