July 6 â Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant turned himself in to police and posted a $25,000 bond on a felony count of sexual assault, the Eagle County sheriffâs office said Sunday. According to the Los Angeles Times, Bryant told a team official that the accusations were âbogus.â The sheriffâs office said an arrest warrant was issued after deputies investigated a womanâs claims Tuesday of sexual misconduct by Bryant. The incident happened the previous night in a resort hotel in the Edwards area of Eagle County, near Vail, the sheriffâs office said in a statement. The report said the incident happened on the night of June 30 in a hotel in the Edwards area of Eagle County, near Vail. After a series of interviews and a review of the physical evidence, investigators met with representatives for District Attorney Mark Hurlbert and concluded they had enough evidence for the felony sexual assault count, the sheriffâs office said in a statement. According to the Times, felony sexual assault has a wide scope in Colorado, ranging from coerced touching to rape. Kobe Bryant's attorney Hurlbert said Sunday night he hadnât made a decision on whether to file charges and had not yet seen the arrest report. He said the sheriffâs office asked a judge for an arrest warrant instead of requesting one through his office, the usual practice. âDuring the investigation, Bryant was cooperative with investigators and remains cooperative with authorities,â the sheriffâs office said. Judge Russell Granger ordered the case sealed. Attempts to reach Bryant for comment were not immediately successful. âThese allegations are completely out of character of the Kobe Bryant we know,â Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said in a statement. âFor the seven years heâs been with us, he has been one of the finest young men weâve known and a wonderful asset to both our team and our community. âHowever, since this is a legal matter being handled by the authorities in Colorado, we must refrain from further comment at this time.â NBA spokesman Tim Frank said the league had no immediate comment. The Times reported that Bryant was a guest at the Lodge and Spa at Cordillera Hotel near Edwards, Colo. According to Bryantâs attorney, Pamela Mackey, Bryant was in Colorado to undergo arthoscopic surgery on his right knee, a procedure performed by Vail specialist Dr. Richard Steadman. Mackey told the Times that Bryant arrived in Edwards on June 30, had surgery the next day and returned to Los Angeles on Wednesday. âKobe is innocent,â Mackey told the Times. âCan you imagine being accused of this? Itâs awful.â Bryant was the NBAâs second-leading scorer last season, averaging a career-best 30 points a game. He scored 40 or more points in nine straight games in February and also had career-high averages of 6.9 rebounds and 5.9 assists while playing in each of the Lakersâ 82 games. The Lakers were eliminated from the Western Conference semifinals by the San Antonio Spurs, ending Los Angelesâ run of three straight NBA championships. Bryant underwent shoulder surgery on June 12 in New York. The Lakers expect heâll be ready by the start of training camp in October. Bryant married Vanessa Laine in April 2001. Bryant and his parents recently mended a rift that developed when he became engaged to Laine when she was an 18-year-old high school student. Vanessa, gave birth to their first child, Natalia Diamante Bryant, in January.
