A lawsuit was filed Tuesday against former USC standout and former Clippers guard Nick Young by a woman who alleges the basketball player drugged her and had non-consensual sex with her.

The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court against Young and the Crown Bar in West Hollywood.

The woman’s allegations range from sexual battery and false imprisonment to intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence.

She refers to herself as Jane Doe in the complain, and is seeking damages that are unspecified.

The woman’s lawyer, Marvin Wolf, confirmed that Young, who currently plays for the Philadelphia 76ers, is the defendant in the lawsuit. A representative for the 76ers could not be immediately reached.

Young, 27, plays both as a small forward and a shooting guard, and once played basketball for Cleveland High School in Reseda.

The drug that the woman alleges Young used is Gamma-Hydroxbutyric acid, or GHB — often referred to as the date-rape drug.

According to the complaint, the woman was at the Crown Bar in West Hollywood with a friend on Aug. 12, 2011, when Young approached them and offered them drinks.

The suit also states that the plaintiff knew Young from two prior meetings.

“Plaintiff accepted and consumed a champagne beverage that had been offered to her by … Young,” according to the suit.

Court papers also say that the woman alleges that she does not remember what happened after drinking the beverage, but she believes she was taken by Young to his apartment, where she alleges he had sex with her.

When the plaintiff woke up the next morning and asked Young why the two of them were naked in his apartment, he reportedly replied that the two began having sex the previous night, but that they had stopped when she passed out, according to the suit. Court papers also suggest that Young complied when the woman demanded that he take her home.

Ensuing tests later confirmed that the woman had been given GHB, according to the suit, which also says that she underwent exams at the UCLA Santa Monica Rape Treatment Center, which revealed anal and rectal bleeding.

Ugh. Hopefully the evidence is clear either way and justice is done.

Herky Jerky! Don't know why, just felt appropriate to say that.

Wow, this is horrible.

From a basketball perspective, he was only signed to a 1 year deal and is currently a FA, so we have nothing to do with him anymore. From a life perspective, regardless of if he is innocent or guilty, I really wish athletes would avoid putting themselves in these positions to be tied up in mess like this.

Hopefully, he didn't do it though. Most pieces I have read on N.Young have described him as a super likable guy, and outside of his shot selection, he wasn't know for causing trouble for anyone. This would obviously ruin that reputation.

What's "date rate"?

Is it when you rate how your date went? And that's illegal?!

Doubt he raped her. This is why NBA players hirer escorts. Harpies who seduce them and sue them. Usually a settlement occurs. Happened to Big Ben, Janiksoski, Kobe, and countless other athletes.

Yeah, but finding GHB in her system makes it look a lot worse for Young.

She filed a civil complaint seeking money damages?

If you were raped, why not first press criminal charges?

Believe it or not theres actually a lot of people out there who take GHB to get ****ed up. This could easily be a set up. Doubt any athlete is that desperate to drug a chick to get laid.

Well I don't see that as the horrible part, it could've been anyone....Now the anal and rectal bleeding after she woke up at his crib? Dude must have been going to town while she was out. That's that **** I don't like. I hope there is some more evidence against him.

That's true, i've seen/heard of people doing it but its pretty hard to be attracted to someone while they are on GHB, they are kind of a mess and make no sense half the time. You've pretty much got to be on the same level. Basically, the same as picking up on a girl who is falling over herself on her way out of the club.

Either way, it's almost the same thing, but the presence of GHB in a urinary analysis only makes it worse. GHB can usually only be detected in the system within 12-24 hours after consumption.

She could have been a back-door virgin. People don't just roofie people at a bar and wait for it to hit them and suddenly swoop in. It's a calculated maneuver. Young knew the girl from previously meeting her. If she had denied him in the past then that points to motive on top of already having opportunity (him serving them drinks).

If you guys believe Young slip the date rape in her drink, you're clueless. The ***** took it herself to get ****ed up and get piped by Young. Trust there's alot of females that take this drug on the regular

How they can prove he gave her the drug? I see this getting thrown out. Just because he gave her a drink doesn't mean it was laced. His lawyer better be swaying the focus toward her taking the drug herself. The bleeding just verifies vigorous sex, which also might have been encouraged by her to make it look like rape. Making it civil and not criminal also seems to point to her being after money. And why go after Young? He isn't sleeping on millions, last I checked.

These cases are always tough though. There's just too many ****ed up people out there just trying to make a quick dollar, or they just got too wasted and made terrible decisions which they later regret. I'll reserve any actual judgement until something comes of this.
