The L.A. County sex crimes task force hasn't given any specific details about the case.

In December, Stallone's lawyer said that a woman had "filed a police report alleging a rape that occurred 27 years ago". As Deadline notes, an attorney for Stallone told USA Today at the time that the actor "categorically disputes the claim". Under California's statute of limitations, an allegation dating back to the 1990s can not be charged, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Around that time, police said they were investigating a complaint of alleged sexual misconduct by Stallone in the 1990s, Reuters reported.

Representatives for Stallone, 71, did not immediately return a call for comment on Wednesday.

The Pistons are looking to fill the hole that former coach Stan Van Gundy left after he was sacked by owner Tom Gores this spring. MI was one of the top defensive teams in the country this past season, again falling just one game short of a national title.

Stallone broke his silence to Radar exclusively last December about the rape allegations against him, claiming that he was completely innocent and that the claims were false. The alleged victim filed a police report in May.

Stallone skyrocketed to fame in 1976 with his Oscar-winning boxing movie Rocky and went on to become one of Hollywood's biggest action stars through the Rambo and Rocky film franchises.

USA prosecutors have launched a probe to determine whether film star Sylvester Stallone should be charged in connection with a sexual assault reported previous year, a spokesman said Wednesday. He also co-wrote and will reprise his role as Rocky Balboa in "Creed 2". The girl stated that Stallone would "beat her head in" if she told anyone about the incident. The stories resurfaced in November 2017 after those outlets got access to police case files.
