Chinese Billionaire Denies Wrongdoing in Sex Misconduct Arrest in Minneapolis, His Lawyers Say

Sep 04 , 2018

JD.com Inc. JD 0.97% Chief Executive Liu Qiangdong denies any wrongdoing in connection with his arrest on suspicion of sexual misconduct in Minneapolis, and it’s likely no charges will be filed, his attorneys said Monday.

Mr. Liu, 45, was taken into custody by Minneapolis police on Friday and released the next day. Police haven’t disclosed the nature of the sexual misconduct complaint, but have called it an “active investigation.”

“He was absolutely innocent of any wrongdoing in this case,” attorney Earl Gray said in a telephone interview. “Once the police realized it was a mistake to arrest him without proper evidence, they released him without bail and without taking his passport.”
