Well...this isn't good.

Reports of out Chicago are that Chicago Cubs star Starlin Castro has been charged with sexually assaulting a Chicago woman last September.

No criminal charges have been filed, but the 21-year-old shortstop is reportedly wanted for questioning by Chicago Police.

Long story short...the alleged victim claims she was drinking with friends at a River North nightclub on the night of Sept. 29 when she met the 2011 National League hits leader . They left the bar at 3am and, along with friends, and went to Castro’s nearby apartment.

According to the police report, she blacked out and when she came to...Castro was sexually assaulting her.

This...from WBBM out of Chicago:

It says that when she woke up she screamed and yelled at her alleged attacker, and left the apartment at about 5:30 a.m. getting a ride home from her friend.

It would be 12 hours before the alleged victim would go to a hospital, and police would become involved.

By then, it is believed that Castro was on a plane, heading home to the Dominican Republic for the off-season.

As you would expect, this has gotten the attention of both Castro's attorneys and Cubs brass. Here's what the former had to say about their client.

We are aware of certain allegations that have been made against our client, Starlin Castro. We have thoroughly investigated this matter, and we are confident that these allegations are baseless. Given the sensitive nature of this matter, we cannot comment any further.

And...here's what the Cubs had to say.

We are aware that a police report was filed regarding an incident involving Starlin, but we have received limited information. While this is something we take very seriously, there is not enough information to make any further comment or take action at this time. We are hopeful when the facts are brought to light, Starlin will be cleared of any wrongdoing.

Castro has not been back in the States since the season ended in September. He is, however, expected to be in attendance when the Cubs Convention hits Chicago next weekend.

By then, you can assume that, if something comes from these allegations, the papers will be flooded with "Fallen Star(lin)" headlines.
