'Tiger' facing sex charges

Dave "Tiger" Williams, former Canuck and Toronto Maple Leaf,  has been accused of sexual assault and assault after a military trip to Europe.

Williams was in Latvia in December when the incidents are alleged to have taken place, the Canadian Armed Forces said in a statement Friday.

Details have not been offered by the Canadian Armed Forces but we do know, Williams was a passenger on a flight as part of a visit meant to boost morale of deployed Canadian troops.

"Every allegation of sexual assault is taken seriously by the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service," Lt.-Col. Kevin Cadman said in the statement.

"In all cases, no matter who the accused is, we strive to restore the dignity of victims by fully investigating their complaints, gathering evidence, reconstructing events, and if warranted, laying appropriate charges."

A spokesperson told The Canadian Press Williams was charged Wednesday and arrested on Friday. He was charged with two counts of sexual assault and one count of assault under the Criminal Code.

He was released from custody on a promise to appear.
