Utah Jazz Center Jeff Withey Faces Domestic Violence Probe

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Police are investigating an allegation of domestic violence against Utah Jazz center Jeff Withey.

Manhattan Beach police spokesman Sgt. Tim Zins said Thursday that a police report had been filed accusing Withey of domestic violence. He said detectives are investigating the allegations.

The Jazz said in a statement that the team is aware of the allegations against Withey but would not comment until they had a better understanding of the situation.
Police say the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office will have to determine whether or not Withey will be charged with a crime.

A district attorney’s spokesman didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday afternoon.
