KTLA is reporting in Los Angeles that in Prosper, Texas, the son of Angels outfielder Torii Hunter has been arrested for sexual assault of a child.
KTLA.com reports that 17-year-old Darius McClinton is one of five Prosper High School students arrested Monday on charges related to a sexual assault reported last month.
The investigation into the alleged sexual assault was reported about a month ago “and culminated with the arrest of these five individuals today,” said assistant Prosper police chief Gary McHone.
Four of those arrested are charged with sexual assault of a child and the fifth is charged with unlawful restraint, McHone said.
KTLA reports that two of those arrested are adults, 17-year-old Garrick White and 17-year-old Darius McClinton-Hunter.
Both White and Hunter are both charged with sexual assault of a child, a 2nd-degree felony.
The Prosper Police Department released a statement saying more charges could be filed.
Hunter, a Prosper native, could not immediately be reached for comment by KTLA.
Tim Mead, the Angels vice president of communications, told KTLA that the club has placed outfielder Hunter on the restricted list for a personal matter.
