Former Independence QB Chris Leak under investigation for sexual assault

Former Florida star Chris Leak, who resigned as Edgewater (Orlando) High coach, is under investigation for an alleged sexual assault of a 16-year-old girl, Orlando police told The Orlando Sentinel.

Police said the investigation is ongoing and Leak has not been charged. The Sentinel was unable to reach him for comment.

The incident is alleged to have happened Sept. 5 but was reported to police Monday. Leak resigned Monday after just five games with an 0-5 record.

According to the police report, the girl said Leak asked her o give him a massage and he came out of the shower wearing only a towel. After he massaged the back of his legs, the girls said he asked her to massage the front of his legs and then pulled her hands up and her hands grazed genitals, according to the report.

The girl then left. Leak later brought her some food and took her home.

Police described the girl as “very upset” when she described the events.

The school’s athletic director did not have a comment when contacted by The Sentinel.
