(CBS) PROSPER, Texas - The son of baseball star Torii Hunter is accused of being part of a club where high school boys allegedly drugged girls and had sex with them, according to the Dallas Morning News.
The newspaper reports that Darius McClinton-Hunter, 17, the son of Los Angeles Angels outfielder Torii Hunter, was among five Prosper High students arrested Monday after what prosecutors say was a months-long investigation. He bonded out of jail later that day.
According to the newspaper, prosecutors allege that the boys involved called themselves Team Snapback, and one boy is accused of dragging a girl into a closet where they say McClinton-Hunter forced her to have oral sex.
Torii Hunter has taken a leave from the Angels to travel to Texas and deal with "family matters," reports USA Today. The attorney for his son told that paper that McClinton-Hunter denies the charges against him.
"We were stunned by these accusations, disappointed by the way it was handled, but completely confident that the facts will prove Darius is innocent," attorney Todd Shapiro told USA Today. "He, as well as his family, looks (sic) forward to the opportunity to clear his name at the appropriate time."
