News Channel 5 – A former Tennessee Titans cheerleader was arrested after she was accused of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old boy. Elizabeth Leigh Garner was a member of the Titans Cheerleading squad four years ago. This past week she was indicted on charges of sexual battery and solicitation of a minor.
Murfreesboro police said while visiting a friend’s home she followed a 12-year-old boy into the bathroom, fondled him, and then tried to seduce him. The police report stated that Garner told sex crimes detectives, “that she was drunk that evening and that she got the boy confused with a man that was also at the residence.”
“That’s just absolutely no excuse for sexual assaulting a child. If you can’t tell the difference between a 12-year-old and an adult then there are problems,” said Kyle Evans with the Murfreesboro Police Department.
Garner did gain a measure of fame during her time as a Titans cheerleader in 2008 because of her age. She was featured on blogs and newspapers as a 38-year-old who made a team made up of mostly 20-somethings.
Garner said she was innocent of the charges. She was released on a $30,000 bond.
The balls on this broad is amazing. Ah yeah officer, I was drunk and mistook the 12-year old boy for an adult. What the fuck does this kid look like at age 12 to where someone would confuse him for a grown man?! Especially when the chick is 42. Obviously by the law what she did was wrong, but if I’m that 12-year old why the fuck is he doing complaining? I never got that. I’d kill to have a 42-year old former NFL cheerleader follow me into the bathroom and start fondling me. I’d keep my mouth shut and just hope it continued to happen. With that said though, I can understand if he wanted to tell all his buddies and it just got into the hands of the wrong party. Its hard to keep something that thrilling as a secret. You want to tell your buddies. Only thing is, once you tell someone the power is now in their hands to keep it safe. And that’s never a good thing. Eventually they tell someone, who tells someone, who tells another someone. That leads to a person getting all upset with the actions and ratting the events out to the police. This is a clear indication to never kiss and tell. Its just like when you have a one night stand or a friends with benefits situation going on. You can’t be notifying the world because then the chick starts to get self conscious and worry about her image. Then she stops putting out to you. Boo City. Keep the lips sealed tight, bro, and just keep a good thing going. Soon you’ll be 25-years old, 40-years old, 50-years old and you’ll be begging for moments like this. You might only be 12-years old, but you have to seize the day. Carpe Diem.
