Prosecutor Submits New Evidence Against Sabres’ Evander Kane
Without revealing any details, prosecutors have submitted additional evidence they say supports the charge of trespassing against Buffalo Sabres forward Evander Kane in a case he is also alleged to have grabbed three women during an altercation at a downtown Buffalo bar in June.
Erie County assistant district attorney Lynette Reda submitted what she called a deposition to Judge Barbara Johnson-Lee during Kane’s appearance at Buffalo City Court on Friday morning.
The 25-year-old Kane faces four counts of non-criminal harassment, one count of disorderly conduct and a count of misdemeanour trespass. He is accused of grabbing the women by the hair and neck during separate encounters inside the bar in the early hours of June 24.
The trespassing charge stems from a bouncer forcibly removing Kane from the bar.
Kane pleaded not guilty to all charges last month. He is next scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 31.
