Gab Roy accused of sex assault on teen

Controversial Quebec humourist and blogger Gab Roy spent the night in police custody and will be arraigned today on charges that he had sexual contact with an underage girl.

The complainant is 19 now but says she was 15 when Roy lured her to a motel in Mascouche.

In a video posted on the internet, the woman, whose face is not shown, uses a series of handwritten signs to say the experience almost drove her to suicide. She also accuses Roy of sexually exploiting a 13-year old girl.

Provincial police opened an investigation after the video came to their attention.

Roy is no stranger to controversy. Last fall, he blogged about his fantasies about non-consensual sex with actress Mariloup Wolfe. He later removed the posting and apologized. Wolfe filed a $300,000 lawsuit against him, claiming the blog attacked her dignity.

Soon after, Roy shut down his website and withdrew from public life.
