Former Temple guard Rick Brunson, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer, was involved in an alleged sexual assault at a fitness club last week and arrested in suburban Chicago.

The alleged incident occurred at Lifetime Fitness, where, according to a police report, Brunson grabbed an employee. He was charged with criminal sexual assault, criminal sexual abuse and third-degree aggravated battery.

The arrest was made on June 25, the same day news surfaced that Brunson was poised to return to Temple as an assistant coach under Fran Dunphy and in turn pave the way for his highly recruited son Jalen to join the Owls.

Brunson, 42, played for the Owls from 1991-95 and in the NBA for eight teams from 1997-2006. He worked as an assistant coach for Denver, Chicago and Charlotte in the NBA and Virginia in the NCAA.
