Charges against Evander Kane dismissed

A Buffalo City Court judge Tuesday dismissed charges against Buffalo Sabres forward Evander Kane stemming from alleged incidents involving two women and a bouncer at a West Chippewa bar in June 2016.

Paul Cambria, Kane's attorney, said Tuesday night that the dismissal was the result of a plea agreement that was approved back in October by Buffalo City Court Judge Barbara Johnson-Lee, who ordered an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal of the charges.

"The time period expired and so the charges were dismissed and the record sealed," said Cambria.

Kane had faced one misdemeanor trespass charge and separate noncriminal violations of disorderly conduct and harassment after two female patrons and a bouncer at the Bottoms Up club reported in June that Kane had allegedly grabbed the women and pulled their hair, and then allegedly refused the bouncer’s orders to leave.

Kane, through his attorney,  has consistently denied the complainants’ versions of the events.
