A former Phoenix Suns player was accused of sexually assaulting a woman at his Scottsdale home in early 2013 in a lawsuit filed in federal court Monday afternoon. The woman accused Michael Beasley, who the Suns waived in September 2013 following an arrest for marijuana possession, of stripping her clothing, choking her until she was unconscious and repeatedly sexually assaulting her, according to court documents. A representative for Beasley did not immediately respond to a request for comment Tuesday morning. Arizona Republic

The civil suit filed in U.S. District Court requests $25 million in damages for allegations including sexual assault, infliction of emotional distress and false imprisonment, according to court documents. The woman claims that she and a friend went to a Scottsdale home that Beasley shared with a friend on Jan. 13, 2013 and that Beasley and the other man "physically overpowered, restrained, grabbed and groped," the woman, according to court records. The lawsuit also states that the men "stripped her clothing from her, repeatedly choked her into unconsciousness, and repeatedly sexually assaulted and raped her." Arizona Republic
