Reports have it that the player has turned himself in to face misdemeanor trespassing charges in the bar incident previously reported.
From The Buffalo News -
Three Buffalo Police detectives were seen meeting Kane outside the Central Booking Bureau in City Court around 11 a.m.. They put handcuffs on Kane and accompanied him into the City Court building. Kane turned and walked away from a Buffalo News reporter when she asked them if he had any comment.
Although Kane voluntarily turned himself in to police, he still proclaims his innocence and plans to fight the charges, his attorney, Paul J. Cambria, told The News.
“Without a doubt, he plans to defend himself against these charges.”
The attorney said it is his understanding that Kane will face one misdemeanor count of criminal trespass and up to four counts of non-criminal harassment.
