Former Sacramento King's player Mike Bibby is under investigation by Phoenix Police after an Arizona high school teacher accused him of harassment and sexual abuse, according to TMZ.
The alleged incident took place in 2017. A female teacher at Shadow Mountain High School claims Bibby (who is head coach of the boy's basketball team) "grabbed her by the waist and pulled her into his car while on school grounds -- and then proceeded to grind up on her, " according to official documents obtained by TMZ.
The woman reportedly waited two years until filing a restraining order against the former NBA player. A judge granted the request on February 22nd of 2019, according to The Arizona Republic.
While Bibby has not commented, his lawyer Donald Harris has denied all claims.
"I can say with pretty much certainty this alleged incident didn't happen and that will be shown down the road," Harris told The Arizona Republic. "Michael Bibby did not participate in a sexual assault of any way, shape or form that was alleged by this lady two years ago."
Paradise Valley Unified School District spokeswoman, Becky Kelbaugh issued this statement obtained by The Arizona Republic:
"On February 14th, 2019, PV Schools was notified that the Phoenix Police Department opened an investigation into alleged sexual abuse/harassment of a Shadow Mountain High School staff member by the boys head basketball coach, Mike Bibby. At the request of the Phoenix Police Department, the District's internal investigation was suspended pending the conclusion of the Police Department's active investigation into the accusations."
