Sexual assault charges against Hunter's son dropped

The SportsXchange

A Texas grand jury has decided not to indict the son of Detroit Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter in a sexual assault case.

Charges of sexual assault stemming from an incident that is alleged to have taken place last May have been dropped against Darius McClinton-Hunter, according to CBSSports.com. McClinton-Hunter, 18, was one of five people arrested and accused in an alleged sexual attack in Prosper Texas.

The grand jury's decision means it did not have enough evidence to prosecute McClinton-Hunter. Another teen was indicted on a charge of unlawful restraint, the Dallas Morning News reported.

...McClinton-Hunter shared his relief via Twitter on Monday:

"All my charges has been dropped, omg, I can't believe this, after 9 hard months of crying everyday it's over. I'm a free man!

"I told all of you I was innocent! Lol my god I'm so happy."

McClinton-Hunter had been attending an alternative school while his case has been pending.

Torii Hunter was a member of the Los Angeles Angels at the time of his son's arrest.
