The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office is investigating a sexual assault complaint against a 28-year-old Detroit Tigers player, officials said.
The player hasn’t been named by the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office, but The Detroit News is reporting Tigers relief pitcher Evan Reed, 28, is the subject of the police investigation, citing sources in the Detroit Police Department.
Reed graduated from high school in Quincy, CA, and attended college at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo. He was born in Santa Maria, CA, in 1985.
The county prosecutor’s office acknowledged its investigation centers around events at the MotorCity Casino Hotel the night before the Tigers’ Opening Day (March 31).
The accuser, a 45-year-old woman, reportedly told police she was drugged and raped after meeting Reed at a Royal Oak bar. The woman said she had several drinks and danced with Reed, then doesn’t remember anything until she woke up the next morning at the hotel, lying naked next to Reed. The woman said the sheets on the bed showed evidence of the assault, CBS said.
When she got up to take a shower, Reed reportedly told her to leave his room.
