Kings coach Luke Walton sued for sexual assault

TMZ reports that, according to the lawsuit, Walton forced himself on a woman in his hotel room.

Sacramento Kings head coach Luke Walton is being sued by a woman who alleges he forced himself on her at a hotel in Santa Monica, California, according to U.S. media reports.

Per her complaint, she wanted Walton to write the forward of a book she was working on, and went to his hotel room to discuss the project. Tennant claims she had gone to the hotel to give Walton a copy of her book, "The Transition: Every Athlete's Guide to Life After Sports". TMZ cited legal documents alleging Walton pinned Tennant to the bed in his room, forced kisses on her face, neck and chest, groped her breasts and groin, and rubbed his erection on her leg.

Tennant said she confided with people at the time of the alleged attack but never filed charges.
