Although the Hoyas didn't provide a further explanation as it pertains to the departures of Akinjo and LeBlanc, The Washington Post reported that "a temporary restraining order was granted in D.C. Superior Court against LeBlanc and teammate Galen Alexander on November 20 after two people with addresses close to Georgetown University filed complaints last month against LeBlanc, Alexander and another member of the team".
Their accuser's roommate filed a separate restraining order against Myron Gardner, as well as LeBlanc and Alexander, in which she accused Gardner of sexually harassment and assault stemming from a September 15 incident.
"Georgetown University men's basketball players James Akinjo and Josh LeBlanc will not be playing for the men's basketball team effective immediately and will not be members of the team for the remainder of the season", head coach Patrick Ewing announced in a statement on Monday.
Another player, who the university said is not involved in the civil allegations, is also leaving the program.
The statement goes on to outline Georgetown's process for investigating and adjudicating alleged conduct violations.Читайте также: Carmelo Anthony Was Preparing To Retire Before Blazers Offered Deal
The Washington Post reached Gardner for comment. Gardner and Alexander are still on the Hoyas' roster. He reportedly said, "I don't know who you're getting that from, but I've never done those things in my life". Reports of the restraining order first surfaced on Monday evening. The address of the incident, which occurred near Georgetown University, corresponds with the address given on the temporary restraining order. It also mentions the burglary happening the next day.
The first restraining order was filed against Josh LeBlanc and Galen Alexander on November 5.
According to the report, three men stole a Nikon camera and lens, two PlayStation controllers and a pair of shoes. When subsequently contacted by video call, the suspect allegedly said to the victim, "If you tell anyone, we'll send people after you".
Kristen Metzger, chief spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police Department said: "This is now an active investigation". The spokeswoman confirmed that Akinjo, a sophomore, did not come up in any police reports that have been filed.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
