Laker claims innocence in alleged assault, saying, "You know I would never do something like that."
In a calm voice, Laker star Kobe Bryant asserted his innocence Saturday, eight days after being arrested and booked on suspicion of felony sexual assault in Eagle County, Colo.
"When everything comes clean, it will all be fine, you'll see," Bryant said during a brief telephone interview.
Bryant declined to discuss the case, but said, "But you guys know me, I shouldn't have to say anything. You know I would never do something like that."
He sounded surprised at the rumors being spread about that night.
"Man, there's a lot of crazy stories out there," he said.
