Lakers Devin Ebanks isn’t having the type of season he envisioned. Since being arrested early last month on an alleged DUI, Ebanks hasn’t seen a lot of time on the floor. Now comes news that he’ll have another legal battle to deal with trying to find his spot in Mike D’Antoni’s rotation.
In September of 2011 a woman accused Ebanks of sexual assualt but the DA declined to file charges due to insuffient evidence. Now that same woman has filed a civil suit against the forward hoping to receive monetary compensation for suing Ebanks for sexual assault and battery, defamation, and intentional infliction of emotional distress per TMZ.
Here’s the twist to this story. The alleged victim and Ebanks never had sex. Check the deets from TMZ last fall:
the alleged victim told police Ebanks took her home from a nightclub on September 13, 2011 … but when she turned down his sexual advances, Ebanks “forcibly penetrated [her] vagina with his penis five to ten times.”
