Football player sues accusers

Son of Detroit Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter seeking more than $10 million in damages

Attorneys for Darius McClinton-Hunter, the son of Detroit Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter, have filed a lawsuit in Collin County, Texas, against three teenage girls and their parents.

The lawsuit, which is seeking more than $10 million in damages, claims the eight defendants made false allegations of sexual assault against McClinton-Hunter. On May 14 2012, McClinton-Hunter, then a junior football player at Prosper, Texas, was arrested by Prosper police on charges of sexual assault. On Feb. 13, a grand jury declined to prosecute McClinton-Hunter, 17.

The lawsuit breaks down McClinton-Hunter’s version of events into sections titled, Not Just Another Day, The Girls Arrive, Just Hangin’ Out, I’ve Got an Idea, Let’s Try This Again, Fast Times at Prosper High, Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Cause We, We Get Down Baby and The Truth Shall Set You Free and quotes a line from Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean: “And mother always told me, ‘Be careful of who you love and be careful of what you do, cause the lie becomes the truth.’ ”

The suit says because of the charges, McClinton-Hunter’s reputation was hurt, he was kicked out of school at Prosper and his chances of a college football scholarship were damaged.
