A woman is claiming Los Angeles Kings star player Drew Doughty sexually assaulted her after meeting him at a local bar, but her story is a little shaky.

The 25-year-old accuser has reportedly hired (want to guess?) Gloria Allred to represent her (though ABC7 notes that Allred "neither confirmed nor denied that she is representing Doughty's accuser").

The alleged incident took place in March, when the woman says she met Doughty, 22, at Sharky's in Hermosa Beach. (We're thinking that ABC7 meant Sharkeez*, however, whose sibling location in Huntington Beach made headlines for being linked to 72 DUI arrests in the span of 22 months. Plus Sharky's is a fast-casual taco chain.)

She claims that after she turned down Doughty's advances in front of several of his teammates, he shoved her into a cab and took her home to sexually assault her. She reported the incident to police that same day.

The police reportedly took the woman's claim seriously, but then she said something that made them think perhaps she wasn't on the up-and-up. When they asked her what she thought would be suitable punishment for Doughty, her reply was: "I don't want him to win the Stanley Cup."

As we all know, she did not get her wish.

The case is currently under review, and no charges against Doughty have been filed.

*Ed. note: The Daily Breeze gives the location as Sharkeez.
