Barkley under investigation for indecent assault
August 30, 2004
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Former NBA star Charles Barkley is under investigation for indecent assault, police said Monday.
A woman reported she was assaulted by Barkley at the nightclub 32 Degrees, Cpl. Jim Pauley said.
``We want to stress that no charges have been filed,'' Pauley said. ``This incident is under investigation.''
Police received the report at 1:20 a.m. Friday, Pauley said. The investigation is being conducted by the department's Special Victims Unit, and police
did not release any details of the allegation.
Attempts by The Associated Press to reach Barkley, now a basketball analyst, or his agent were unsuccessful Monday night.
Barkley was a nine-time All-Star and the league's MVP in 1993. He has been an analyst with cable network TNT since his retirement in 2000
