L.A. Kings
star Drew Doughty has been officially cleared of raping a woman he hooked up with in a bar ... TMZ has learned.

As TMZ first reported, the NHL defenseman had been investigated after the woman accused him of forcibly having sex with her at his home back in March ... after bumping into each other in a Hermosa Beach, CA bar.

According to the the L.A. County District Attorney's Office ... the alleged victim "told the investigating officer that she had consensual sex with suspect" a few months prior to the March incident.

The D.A. says there is insufficient evidence to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt -- and as a result Doughy will not be prosecuted.

Law enforcement sources have told TMZ there were "major issues" with the woman's credibility.

So because sex was consensual before, he couldn't have raped her? Sounds like Kobe, the hockey version to me.

Why can't all articles be like this one in the comment section. When it somebody of color it get thrown into the comment and makes it sound way worse. I don't hear anyone referring to this guy as nothing but an athlete. Otherwise all you hear is "another black this" and friq'n blacks that" sh!t get old.

@ The Game : I agree. The amount of racism on the internet towards blacks and jews is just appalling. And people wonder why black people accuse white people of racism??? Just look at all the racist comments on youtube, cnn , tmz, etc. for your answer. It appears the USA is still fighting the Civil War. Sad.

This woman has no credibilty at all. I remember the original story, and it's pretty obvious she's just looking for a payout.
He should sue her now.

Innocent men are wrongly convicted of rape all the time, false rape accusations against men from women are the most commonly made false accusations on record
