Elizabeth Leigh Garner, a 42-year-old former Tennessee Titans cheerleader, has been arrested for the alleged sexual battery of a 12-year-old Rutherford County boy.
Garner, of Highland Park Court in Nashville, was arrested in Nashville on March 14 and then booked into a Rutherford County jail. She is charged with aggravated sexual battery and solicitation of a minor for rape of a child.
According to Murfreesboro Police Department records, in February while Garner was staying at the 12-year-old boy’s home, he got up in the night to go to the bathroom, and Garner followed him into the bathroom. Garner allegedly asked the boy if he’d ever been with a woman and grabbed his penis from the outside of his pants, before attempting to take his shorts off and stating that she wanted to perform a sex act on him.
Garner told police that she was drunk that night and got the boy “confused” with a man who was also at the home at that time.
The case was presented before a Rutherford County grand jury earlier this month, and Garner was consequently indicted on the charges.
