Mike Bibby, a former NBA player working as the head basketball coach at Shadow Mountain High School, Arizona, was accused of sexual assault by a fellow teacher. Phoenix police were investigating the claims.

According to the restraining order obtained by the Arizona Republic, the incident took place in February 2017. Bibby allegedly grabbed the teacher by her waist and pulled her into his car, where he groped her and rubbed his genitals against her. She somehow managed to open the car’s door and run toward the main door of the school building. Bibby followed her, hugged her and again rubbed his genitals against her.

A few days later, he walked into her classroom uninvited and spoke to some of the students. The following day, she saw Bibby waiting outside the classroom and told him they needed to talk. They sat in a classroom where she told him that he had sexually abused her. Bibby replied by saying he was drunk. He also told her she was a "beautiful and nice person."

The restraining order stated that he again stood outside her class in October 2018. She reported the alleged incident to the school's resource officer on Feb. 13, 2019.

The basketball coach refused to comment, however, his attorney denied the allegations.

"I can say with pretty much certainty this alleged incident didn't happen and that will be shown down the road. Michael Bibby did not participate in a sexual assault of any way, shape or form that was alleged by this lady two years ago,” his attorney, Donald Harris, said.

The Paradise Valley Unified School District issued a statement confirming the investigation.

“On February 14, 2019, PV Schools was notified that the Phoenix Police Department opened an investigation into alleged sexual abuse/harassment of a Shadow Mountain High School staff member by the boys head basketball coach, Mike Bibby,” district spokeswoman Becky Kelbaugh said.

“At the request of the Phoenix Police Department, the District’s internal investigation was suspended pending the conclusion of the Police Department’s active investigation into the accusations,” she added.

Sgt. Vince Lewis, a Phoenix Police Department spokesman, too confirmed the investigation but refused to disclose the names of the people involved in the incident.
