Three Oregon basketball players are not participating in team activities following the release a police report that alleges the trio sexually assaulted a woman at a party and then an apartment in March. Damyean Dotson, Dominic Artis and Brandon Austin are all named in the disturbing police report that has extremely graphic details. You can read it all here (PDF). But be warned: the police officer who took the statement from the woman opens the report by saying she “almost started crying” learning the details.
According to the Oregonian, the case will not be prosecuted due to insufficient evidence. However, the district attorney’s office did offer up the following:
“While there is no doubt the incidents occurred, the conflicting statements and actions by the victim make this case unprovable as a criminal case.”
Dotson and Artis, sophomore guards, averaged 9.4 ppg and 4.1 ppg, respectively. Austin is a highly-touted recruit who transferred from Providence and was expected to contribute significantly to the Ducks next season. [via Oregon Live]
