BUFFALO, NY-- Buffalo Police have released the police reports regarding two incidents allegedly involving Buffalo Sabres' Evander Kane.
Kane has been named in preliminary police reports connected to an altercation that took place Thursday night or early Friday morning at the Bottoms Up nightclub on Chippewa Street in Downtown Buffalo.
Sources tell 2 On Your Side that Kane has not been charged and there are no reports of any arrests connected to the incident in question.
The Associated Press reports Kane physically harassed two women at the bar. A person familiar with the situation tells the AP Kane grabbed a woman by the arm or shoulder.
Kane's attorney, Paul Cambria, tells us Kane, "did nothing wrong."
Mike DeGeorge, a spokesperson for the Buffalo Police Department, issued a statement that said "Buffalo Police are in the preliminary stages of investigating the allegations."
At Saturday’s NHL Draft at FNC we asked Sabres coach Dan Bylsma and GM Tim Murray about the allegations. "I'm not pleased to see the headline," said Bylsma. Murray told us he hasn't talked with Evander Kane yet, but has talked to Kane's agent. It’s a "wait-and-see" situation at this point, Murray said, since he still doesn't know all the details.
Mayor Byron Brown declined comment at an event Saturday afternoon.
This is Kane's second run-in with police in six months. In March, a three-month investigation led prosecutors to rule Kane would not face a sexual assault charge because there was no evidence to support the allegation.
