Report: Blackhawks Star Patrick Kane Subject of Police Probe
A report from the Buffalo News indicates police are investigating an incident reportedly involving Patrick Kane.
Two sources with knowledge of the probe say police officials have forbidden their officers and detectives from publicly discussing the investigation of the Blackhawks star:
“We can neither confirm nor deny the existence or nonexistence of a criminal investigation until such a time as a person is charged with a crime,” said Hamburg Police Chief Gregory G. Wickett.
Erie County District Attorney Frank A. Sedita III used very similar language when asked about an investigation.
“We neither confirm nor deny the existence or nonexistence of an investigation until such time as someone has been charged with a crime,” Sedita said.
The paper has filed a Freedom of Information Act request to get further details, but that could take up to 20 days to be processed.
The Buffalo News reports no charges have been filed in connection with the investigation and it is not known whether police have questioned Kane.
This certainly is not the best of news for Blackhawks fans already going through a tumultuous off-season following the Stanley Cup win.
