Evander Kane accused of grabbing two women at Buffalo bar

Two recently released Buffalo police reports shed some details on alleged physical harassment incidents involving Evander Kane at a Buffalo bar early last Friday morning.

One report said, “While inside Bottoms Up nightclub, suspect threatened complainant and made derogatory comments to her. While outside in the parking lot of bar, suspect grabbed complainant around the throat and tried pushing her into his car.”

Another noted, “that while inside Bottoms Up, suspect grabbed her by the arms and tried forcing her out of the bar.”

Bottom’s Up is a nightclub on Chippewa Street.

According to WVIB last weekend, the investigation was in its “preliminary stages.” No arrests have been made and no charges have been filed.

The Buffalo News pointed out what such investigations could yield if charges are filed.

Police say the section of law that Kane may have violated, depending on the outcome of their investigation, would fall under misdemeanor second-degree harassment. 

 Also Kane’s attorney Paul J. Cambria spoke to the Buffalo News on his client’s innocence.

“We reviewed the videos and talked to everyone on that and he steadfastly denies doing anything wrong and we have seen nothing to the contrary.” 

This is the second time in the span of seven months that Kane has come under investigation. In Dec. 2015, Kane was investigated by police for an alleged 'sex offense' at a local hotel. He was later cleared of all wrongdoing by the police

Buffalo traded for Kane in the 2014-15 season after Kane had a tumultuous six years with the Winnipeg Jets/Atlanta Thrashers organization.

“If it’s true then we have to deal with it. If it’s false again, then I guess we have to come up with a different plan of attack to make sure that these accusations that may not be true, how do we stop them [from happening]?” Sabres general manager Tim Murray said at the NHL Draft.

Added Murray, “No, I haven’t spoke with him. I’ve heard the stories. The very first part of it that came out didn’t sound very good. The stuff I’ve heard since from various people that have made statements that night that say they didn’t make statements. I’ve talked to his agency. They’ve heard a different story than what was reported. So I really … I’m commenting, but I can’t comment in detail. I’ve got nothing to comment on.”

Kane has yet to publicly address the alleged incident.
