Authorities say the accusations were made by a woman who accepted a ride from Gates after he coaxed her to get into his car at a convenience store. She says instead of taking her home — he drove to a dead end street and began groping her and trying to force her to engage in sexual conduct with him.

Gates maintains the contact was consensual.
