The Buffalo News reports that Chicago Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane and his cousin are expected to reach a plea agreement and avoid charges related to an incident with a Buffalo cab driver.

According to the paper, the Patrick Kane and his cousin James could plead guilty to lesser charges such as harassment or disorderly conduct; or an adjournment that could result in the charges being dropped. Neither scenario likely would involve jail time for either one of the cousins.

"I think everything is going to be wrapped up by the end of the week," a law enforcement source told the Buffalo News. "All parties are working in that direction."

The Buffalo native and his cousin were arrested in the early hours of Aug. 9 after 62-year-old taxi driver Jan Radecki reported the pair beat him up when he told them he didn't have 20 cents change for the US$13.80 fare.

The Kanes pleaded not guilty to robbery and misdemeanour counts of theft and criminal mischief. The driver's lawyer has said the incident was "blown out of proportion" and suggested the dispute can be worked out.

Kane was originally to have appeared in court Monday, but the date was postponed so he could attend the camp in a Chicago suburb.
