Don’t like reading horrible stories about former sports celebrities molesting children? HERE, HAVE TWO.
The first is Elizabeth Leigh Garner, a 42-year old former Tennessee Titans cheerleader, who is in trouble for getting drunk at a party, following a 12-year old boy (yes, a 12-year old boy) into a bathroom and trying to go down on him against his will. This is a thing that happened in real life.
“He stated she was asking him if he had ever been with a woman,” Roberts reported, adding the boy disclosed she then touched him inappropriately on the outside of his pants. “He also said she was making an attempt to take his shorts off …” and told the boy she would perform oral sex on him.
The boy told Roberts he became frightened and was able to get out of the bathroom and tell his mother. (via Black Mountain News)
That last sentence is such a ghastly reminder of how young a 12-year old really is. Her excuse is equally embarrassing, and the type of thing you can’t really make up.
“Ms. Garner, who was advised of her miranda rights, stated that she was drunk that evening,” Roberts reported, “and that she got the boy confused with a man who also at the residence.”
To her credit, it’s probably totally easy to mix up a grown man with a 12-year old who is sobbing and running off to tell his mother. Here’s a video clip of the story, courtesy of NewsChannel5.com:
While we’re on the subject of children getting molested, hey, remember Mark “Super” Duper? He was really good, right?
Now he’s famous for being that guy who was playing video games with a teenage boy, got mad at him about it and proceeded to beat him to near-death while yelling about murdering him. Super Duper, everybody!
“While playing video games with a friend’s children, Duper got into an argument with the victim when the boy refused to pick his hat off the floor, police say.
Duper then punched the boy in the face and slammed him to the ground several times, causing him to lose consciousness, police say.
After 10 minutes of fighting, Duper told the boy to leave his house, according to the arrest affidavit. The boy began to leave but walked back inside the house to grab a jacket, and he and Duper again began fighting. The boy’s father separated the pair when he saw Duper punching his son in a bedroom.
As the boy left the house, he pushed his bicycle into Duper’s vehicle, police say. Duper saw him, punched him in the face, and began choking him while the boy was on the ground.” (via News 4 Jax)
I hope that wasn’t Dan Marino’s bastard he was trying to choke to death.
Today’s lesson, if we can learn one, is that if you are a young person and know somebody who used to be in the NFL … I don’t know, stay away from them for a little while. I don’t want to read about Boomer Esiason getting into an argument about Mark Sanchez and kicking somebody’s baby.
