Earlier today we reported on two Texas Longhorn players had been accused of sexually assaulting a young woman while they prepared to play in the Alamo Bowl.
We believe those players to be QB Case McCoy & LB Jordan Hicks. Mack Brown has suspended to the two players for “violating team rules”. According to the police report the suspects are a 20-year-old black man 6-2, 235, and a 21-year-old white man who is 6-0, 180. Deadspin points out on the Texas Longhorn official page Hicks is listed as 6-2, 235 and McCoy 6-0, 180, so this is probably not a coincidence.
Here is what the woman told the police.
The cop dispatched to the scene noted that the alleged victim “had a strong odor of alcohol on her breath and was crying alongside her friend.” The alleged victim said she had four drinks. The alleged victim also said she didn’t remember exactly what happened, but that she met the two men at at a nightclub and then went with them to a bar at her hotel, after which she brought them to her room.
The alleged victim told police, “I feel ashamed saying this, but I know [REDACTED] was in me. [REDACTED] just stood there and watched. I don’t quite remember.”
Here is the official police report.
Unfortunately, these stories happen often. The young woman was drunk, so it is hard to determine who is telling the truth. Rape is a serious crime, so regardless of her state of mind if she didn’t want to have sex you have to respect that, but on the flip side if she can’t remember what happened, how can her word be trusted over the players?
Lesson to be learned here is not don’t get so drunk you have a problem remembering things and don’t go back to a man’s room you just met at a nightclub at 4 am.
As for men if you see a woman is drunk, just don’t do it. Why take the chance of something being interpreted wrong or taking advantage of a woman who obviously isn’t thinking clearly.
Just don’t do it.
