Court documents filed Thursday contained details in the sexual assault case involving Nashville Predators center Mike Ribeiro. Ribeiro is accused of assaulting his former nanny. 

The suit, which was initially filed last July, alleges that Ribeiro "acted intentionally, knowingly and recklessly" and "caused bodily injury." In March, Ribeiro​'s attorney said that the player and his wife "plan to vigorously fight this lawsuit."

The documents published by the blog On The Forecheck Friday include a claim that Ribeiro would stare at her with his hands down his pants and that he restrained the nanny against her will while performing a sexual act. It also alleges that Ribeiro​'s wife was negligent in failing to stop the assault.

Ribeiro completed his first season with Nashville after being released by the Coyotes last year for what the team said was behavioral reasons. He recorded 62 points in 82 games this season.
