I knew there was a good reason I chose Andrew to be my best man. Many thanks to Mr. Long for alerting me to the crucially important fact that there have been new developments in the hot lesbian cheerleader sex story.
It is being widely reported that Angela Keathley — the brunette — has pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and obstructing a police officer. But according to the Charlotte Observer, that’s not quite correct:
A former Carolina Panthers cheerleader arrested after a November fight at a Tampa, Fla., nightclub has been accepted into a six-month diversion program for first-time offenders that could get the charges against her dropped.
Angela Keathley will receive six months probation, must perform 32 hours of community service, write an apology to Tampa police and pay court fees, said assistant state attorney Pam Bondi.
If Keathley completes the program and stays out of trouble during the next six months, the charges of disorderly conduct and obstructing or opposing a police officer would be removed from her record, Bondi said.
She did not have to enter a guilty plea to join the program.
Blogger Tom Moran at CelticProgressive says the Panthers should re-hire Keathley:
Now that the legal part of her case is over, I think Ms. Keathley should get her job back — don’t you? After all, if one of the players had been sentenced to probation after a minor scuffle in a bar, you can bet your ass that he’d still be on the team. It’s only the rankest hypocrisy that gives a woman greater punishment than a man for the same offense.
Meanwhile, the blonde, Renee Thomas, has pleaded not guilty to battery, presenting a false driver’s license, and giving a false name, causing harm to others. She has another court appearance on Feb. 15.
Thomas has also been sued in civil court by Melissa Holden, the woman she allegedly punched. Holden wants $15,000 in damages for her injuries. Thomas is countersuing for defamation, saying Holden falsely claimed the cheerleaders were having lesbian sex. “It was the false allegation in regards to the sexual activity that spun things out of control,” said Thomas’s attorney, Peter Anderson. (”You have no idea,” responded every heterosexual man in America.)
You know, Renee, if you had accepted Penthouse’s offer, that would have been a much surer way to collect money than countersuing. Just saying.
