No rape charges against Kings' Drew Doughty


Doughty was accused of having sex with a woman against her will at his house after a night of drinking at Baja Sharkeez bar on the Hermosa Beach Pier.

The woman told Hermosa Beach Police that Doughty raped her and forced her to orally copulate him. She said Doughty did not threaten her, but did have sex with her against her will.

According to the D.A.'s charge evaluation, police offered to record a phone call between suspect and alleged victim in an attempt to get incriminating statements from suspect, but the alleged victim did not want to call Doughty.

The D.A.'s Office declined to press charges against Doughty due to lack of sufficient evidence to proceed with the case.

Doughty, 22, is the Kings' top-paid player annually. He scored two goals and had four assists in the Stanley Cup Finals.
