Philadelphia 76ers guard Nick Young is facing a lawsuit for allegedly giving a woman a date rape drug and sexually assaulting her in 2011. The woman is suing Young for sexual assault, sexual battery, and false imprisonment

The woman filed the suit anonymously under the name Jane Doe and alleges that she and a friend met Young at a bar in West Hollywood. It was there that Young bought her and her friend a drink.

More on the story from TMZ:

According to the suit, the woman’s recollection of the evening ceased shortly after she downed the drink … and she believes it’s because Young had slipped the date rape drug gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid (GHB) into it.

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.

The woman said that Young admitted to having sex with her the night before, but he claimed he stopped once she passed out.

Aside from Young, the woman is also suing the bar for negligence.

Young, in his 5th NBA season, averaged 10.6 points in 59 games with the Sixers in 2012-13. The 27-year-old played his college career at USC and was drafted 16th overall in the 2007 draft by the Washington Wizards.

  1. Um, is there any record of her filing a policereport on said incident? Just asking ....

  2. Where was her so called girlfriend when all this was going on? Some girlfriend; and why didn't she offer to take her home? Sounds like another gold-digging trick. Why do men continue to fall for these stupid traps.

  3. Wow! This is 2013 and the incident supposely happen in 2011, why such a long wait to file? Someone should check to see if this young man just signed a new contract giving him more money!

  4. Drug a women, Idiot move
    Take a drug women to your house, 2nd Idiot move
    Admiting to having sex with the women, 3rd Idiot move.

    You are an NBA player, act like a gentlemen and you will not go from being a atar to being an As_Hol_.

  5. that b-----ch is lying she needs some money could not have been me i would have left that tramp rephrase drunk as- tramp right on the curb pssed out

  6. This article has so many holes in it take for instance the part about her recollection of evening ceased shortly after downing the drink, if that were true how was she able to remember asking to be taken home? Why not call police instead of waiting 2 yrs to report incident! Something just dont sound right and before I jump all over this young man I will wait for facts. Sounds like a gold digger or a reject to me!

  7. Young brought her and her friend a drink she says, so what happen to the friend? Would you allow a friend to leave with someone knowing shes drunk or in her case supposely drugged. And you are sueing under Jane Doe. This is about money plain and simple!
