Ex-Knicks Star Larry Hughes

Former New York Knicks star Larry Hughes is being questioned by the NYPD as part of a sexual assault investigation ... this according to the NY Daily News

TMZ Sports had previously confirmed with the NYPD that investigators were looking into an incident at the Trump Soho in NYC ... and now, the Daily News reports Hughes is the suspect.

The report says Hughes met the alleged victim at Greenhouse nightclub late Thursday evening and walked to the Trump SoHo together at 4AM. 

According to the report, Hughes was taken out of the Trump SoHo in handcuffs earlier today -- though the NYPD will NOT confirm that with us. 

As for the accuser, described a 22-year-old woman, she reportedly went to a hospital after the alleged sexual assault and told a doctor she was raped. 

We've placed multiple calls to the NYPD, Trump SoHo and  Hughes himself -- so far, no one is saying a word.

FYI -- we're told Hughes is the majority owner of Greenhouse nightclub ... and has taken over all operations from previous owner/operator Barry Mullineaux who resigned back in January.

prison tats ?
In the United States, it can mean the wearer has killed someone. The number of teardrops may indicate the number of years spent in prison, or the number of times the wearer was raped. It may also indicate the loss of a fellow gang member.

How Can That be? Not a millionaire athlete. They don't rape and beat women ! Only millionaire rappers do that ! There all from the same bloodline I guess.

Can't any of these pro athletes get women the old fashion way? It seems all they know how to do is attack them and rape them, pretty pathetic, I guess it takes intelligence to date a woman and most of these overpaid animals have zero intelligence, and no class.

He's two tear drops represent his brother who died of a disability at a young age. He is a real humble guy. I believe this story is false someone is looking for a payout.
