Former Titans Cheerleader Charged With Sexually Assaulting 12-Year-Old Boy

(CBS) A 42-year-old former Tennessee Titans cheerleader has been arrested and charged with one count each of aggravated sexual battery and solicitation of a minor for child rape.

Elizabeth “Leigh” Garner was reportedly at a friend’s house in February in Murfreesboro, Tenn. when she followed a 12-year-old boy into the bathroom and allegedly offered to perform oral sex on the boy.

Here’s the report from Murfreesboro Police Detective Tommy Roberts, who interviewed the boy at his school about the alleged abuse.

“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 then became frightened and left the bathroom before telling his mother what happened.

Garner reportedly told police that she had been drinking and got the boy “confused with a man that was also at the residence.”
