Suspended by the Ottawa Senators, and facing harassment charges in Buffalo, Randy Lee has resigned as the hockey club's assistant general manager.
The Ottawa Senators announced late Tuesday afternoon in a terse statement that Lee resigned."The Ottawa Senators today announced that Randy Lee resigned as Assistant General Manager of the Ottawa Senators and General Manager of the Belleville Senators. A search is underway for his replacement," the statement read. "The organization will have no further comment on the matter."
Meantime, Lee will have to wait until next month before facing harassment charges in Buffalo.
According to the Associated Press, Lee's case was scheduled for court August 22, but has since been put over until September 13.
Lee was arrested and charged in late May on allegations he harassed a 19-year-old hotel shuttle driver, and made lewd comments to the victim.
An additional charge was added in June.
In July, Lee's lawyer announced plans to file for dismissal the charges against the Ottawa Assistant GM.
The Senators hockey club suspended Lee from his duties with the team June 15, until the matter is resolved in the courts.
