Mets Ace Johan Santana Accused of Sexual Battery

6/23/2010 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned New York Mets star pitcher Johan Santana was accused in a police report of sexual battery that allegedly went down on a Florida golf course ... but the case went nowhere.

TMZ obtained a copy of the report filed with the Lee County Sheriff's Office on October 28, 2009 -- one day after the alleged attack in Fort Myers.  In the document, the accuser (referred to only as Jane Doe) claims she and Santana were walking on the golf course when he "began to kiss her and pull up her top, unclasping her bra."

The report continues: "Johan began to pull at [the accuser's] skirt/skort and attempt [sic] to place his hands into her underwear."  According to the document the alleged victim "told Johan no multiple times but Johan persisted."

The report gets more graphic, when the accuser claims Santana penetrated her, grabbed and bruised her calf, and "ejaculated on her upper thigh."

The accuser claims she "cleaned her thigh with her underwear" -- and then returned to a tennis court with Santana, and actually watched him play tennis with someone else.

According to the report, a detective collected all of the accuser's clothing as evidence.

A spokesperson from the Sheriff's Office tells TMZ Sheriff's detectives met several times with the prosecutor from the State's Attorney's Office to review the case.  Law enforcement sources say DNA evidence did prove there was intercourse, but, according to a Sheriff's document, the prosecutor concluded, "There was not enough evidence to prove lack of consent, the alleged victim's statement is not consistent with other witnesses."  The case was closed out on December 8, 2009.

We contacted Santana's rep, who said, "Johan denied the charges and was never charged with anything.  As far as the law enforcement side of this goes, the case is closed."

Johan spoke in the Mets' locker room before today's  0623_santana_statement

More TMZ Sports? Must be Evan and Charles' day to pick what's posted. Very few of us follow every single player on every single team, noteworthy or not.



Who cares? NY Mets? Well, I guess if I were in NY....

I am sorry - as a woman, if some guy forced me to have intercourse, I would NOT be watching him play tennis afterwards.



Now I know she may have been shocked at what had just happened, but watching him play tennis is a bit much if he really had forced himself on her.



Ladies - you need to be clear in your actions - if a guy forces you, report it immediately to anyone who will listen...do not do these irrational things - like watch him go play sports...really?

If this really happened, they why did she wait the next day to report it? She went back with him and watched him play a game of tennis. I'm sorry, but seriously, if someone just raped you, as she claimed he did, you would be calling the police. Not only that, but wouldn't she be visibly upset, maybe even crying? Yet no one noticed at the tennis game. If she had been SOMEONE would have noticed! Sounds like more money grubbing hoes trying to make some quick money. You people are so quick to condem, but common sense never seems to come into play. Golddigger logic: Sleep with a famous person, accuse them of assult, sue them for millions. The end. It's been happening more and more lately.
