Wolves' Cunningham plans to file civil lawsuit

  • Updated: August 20, 2014 - 12:23 AM

The agent for free-agent NBA forward Dante Cunningham said his client plans to file a civil lawsuit against the woman who accused him of domestic assault.

After a four-month investigation, authorities dismissed a charge of felony domestic assault against Cunningham on Monday, saying “there was no proof beyond a reasonable doubt for the charged offense.”

“Dante Cunningham is innocent,” agent Joel Bell told the Associated Press on Tuesday. “He plans to bring civil charges against her not only to clear his name but to show people it’s wrong to abuse an already overworked legal system.”

Cunningham, who played the last two seasons with the Timberwolves, was charged in April after he was accused of choking his then-girlfriend at their suburban Minneapolis home. He became a free agent on July 1, but had to put his search for a new contract on hold while the investigation was conducted.

Deeg still leads

Cassie Deeg of Golden Eagle Golf Club had a one-shot lead after the second day of the 43rd Minnesota Women’s State Amateur Championship at Forest Hills Golf Club in Forest Lake.

Deeg shot a 2-over-par 74 after opening with a 73 on Monday. Olivia Herrick of Dellwood Country Club was alone in second place after her second consecutive 74. Six other players were within five strokes of the lead.

The final round is Wednesday.

Saints lose to Gary

The Gary SouthShore RailCats defeated the St. Paul Saints 4-2, ending a nine-game home losing streak.

Any combination of Saints losses and Winnipeg victories that equals five will give the Goldeyes the North Division title in the American Association.

The Saints (45-41), who ended a nine-game losing streak Monday, are even further back in the wild-card race.
