It's Unclear If Incident Is Under Investigation By Law Enforcement


In the documents, the woman claims she was "simply heading to use the bathroom" -- and was not going to the restroom with the intention of having any sort of sexual encounter with Puig.

It's unclear if the woman contacted the LAPD over the incident, or if law enforcement is investigating the MLB star for the alleged assault.
