SENS ASSISTANT GM FACES HARASSMENT CHARGE
Ottawa Senators assistant general manager Randy Lee has been charged with harassment in relation to an incident with a hotel employee in a shuttle bus while in Buffalo for the NHL’s scouting combine. Lee was released after an appearance in a Buffalo courtroom Friday morning, with no representation. His passport was seized and the judge told Lee, pictured, he must stay away from the hotel and to get a lawyer. On Wednesday, according to district attorney John Flynn in Buffalo, Lee was in a hotel shuttle, heading back to his hotel from a restaurant. Flynn said Lee allegedly put his hands on a 19-year-old male employee’s shoulders and made “lewd” remarks. If found guilty Lee could face a fine and up 15 days in jail, but Flynn noted he wouldn’t seek jail time. Flynn said Lee was held in custody Thursday night because he was a Canadian citizen. He is scheduled to appear in court again on Monday, when Flynn said he expects the matter will be resolved. Flynn said he believed the maximum fine is US$250.
