Ottawa Senators assistant general manager Randy Lee is accused of inappropriately touching and making lewd comments toward a 19-year-old hotel shuttle driver while in Buffalo for the NHL's scouting combine.
Lee was charged with second-degree harassment on Friday after being arrested and spending the night in jail. He appeared in court, where his Canadian passport was confiscated, and was scheduled to appear again Monday.
Lee faces a fine and up to 15 days in jail, though Erie County District Attorney John Flynn said he doesn't expect to pursue jail time.

The Senators said in a statement that team officials knew of the arraignment and were reviewing the situation.
It's unclear whether Lee has an attorney. He did not appear with an attorney at his arraignment and is no longer staying at the hotel where the alleged incident happened.
