Gee, it’s all rape and harassment and more harassment day. Here’s a shocker:
Jeremiah True, the Reed College student who made headlines in March for protesting his professor’s decision to remove him from class, was arrested on Thursday by the Portland, Oregon police for alleged sex abuse, harassment, and disorderly conduct.
According to an employee at Rugby Oregon, a youth rugby organization based in Portland, True was arrested for disrupting a high school girls’ rugby practice. He was restrained by a coach who called the police, the employee said.
In March, True drew national attention after he started an online petition claiming he was unfairly removed from the seminar portion of his humanities class for questioning statistics on sexual assault. Other students and his professor said it was his disruptive behavior, not his views, that created a hostile learning environment and resulted in his dismissal.
Wo, who could have seen that coming?!! Normally people who question statistics on sexual assault are serious scholars, not guys who get busted for harassing high school girls trying to play rugby.
A probable cause affidavit filed in Multnomah County Circuit Court says a Reed College student was arrested for sex abuse against a 17-year-old girl.
Portland Police arrested 20-year-old Jeremiah True Thursday after he touched a 17-year-old girl and made an inappropriate comment, according to court documents.
According to court documents, police say the teenage girls were practicing at Normandale Park when he walked up to one of them “and made physical contact with her by caressing her hair and arm.”
Police say he then walked off for a bit before coming back and making the comment that brought the situation to their attention, according to court documents.
True is charged with third-degree sex abuse and harassment.
