First Coast News - What has become clear is that Harris and other Gators football players were partying with the woman and others at Rain nightclub in Gainesville during the night leading up to the incident. Several witnesses, including friends of both, recalled seeing the two being very close that night, even kissing at one point, a police report said.
Marcus Maye, Latroy Pittman, Brian Poole and Keanu Neal, all teammates of Harris, recalled the group leaving the club about 2 a.m. and heading to Waffle House, but stopping at a Kangaroo gas station. At the gas station, Harris and the woman were either holding hands or walking arm-in-arm before they left in her car, witnesses told investigators.
Police said surveillance images confirmed the chain of events described by Maye, Neal, Pittman and Poole. But what exactly happened when the two split off from their friends and went back to Harris’s dorm room depends on whom you ask.
The woman claims she was lying down on Harris’s bed because she was tired, but then he forced himself on her, refusing to climb off and ignoring her pleas for him to stop. “I don’t want to have sex with you,” she recalled saying that night, according to a police report. Harris felt like a “dead weight” on top of her, she told investigators.
Harris didn’t see it that way. In his initial interview with police Oct. 5, he said it all started with a kiss and didn’t recall her saying she didn’t want to have sex. “We were talking, and she did, she start kissing, we kissing each other, and like it just happened,” he told investigators, the report said. Asked to clarify what ‘it’ meant, Harris reportedly said, “We had sex.”
About 7:36 p.m. the same day, Harris sent the woman a text, saying “Don’t tell nobody bout nothing.” As Harris explained it to police, the pair had agreed to keep their encounter quiet.
Midway through his interview, Harris stopped talking and asked for a lawyer, police said. “It was apparent (he) received a text message from someone advising him to no longer speak with me,” an investigator said in a police report.
Harris nevertheless agreed to searches of his room and cellphone for evidence connected to the incident. During their searches, investigators recovered a used condom along with the phone, which was examined by an expert with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
Making matters cloudier are statements from Pittman and the woman’s suite mate that the woman and Pittman had sex just hours before the alleged sexual assault involving Harris. Pittman provided investigators with pages of suggestive text messages between him and the woman. The suite mate recalled hearing the woman apparently bragging about her alleged promiscuity the night of the incident, reportedly saying, “I caught two bodies tonight.”
Ok so if you read the police report you know that the text message above is referencing Treon and the girl agreeing to keep their hook up quiet so that other people on campus didn’t find out about it. Because there was another girl Treon was seeing or something. Didn’t stop every outlet from running with it as a standalone picture with no explanation though. Because that doesn’t insinuate anything under the headline of “rape allegations.” And people say Barstool sucks at reporting stuff?
Anyway this was by far my favorite part of the report
Treon Harris: So is this going to be on ESPN and stuff?
Det. J. Faroni: I have no idea what’s going to happen with any of that stuff. What we’re doing is a criminal investigation. If someone comes forward to us with an allegation, we investigate it. Okay? What I can tell you is we’re really good at our job…
Treon Harris: Yeah.
37 Det. J. Faroni: So what that means is whatever happened is going to come out and it’s going to be done.
Treon Harris: Uh-huh.
Det. J. Faroni: Okay? So, it’s much better to just deal with this right now, right…
Treon Harris: So it’s going to get on ESPN.
Det. J. Faroni: …then put it off, put it off, put it off. What’s that?
Treon Harris: So you’re saying it’s going to get on ESPN?
Det. J. Faroni: I’m not even talking about ESPN anymore.
Treon Harris: Oh.
Guy is facing sexual assault charges for allegedly raping a girl and all he can think about is if it’s gonna be on ESPN. So goes the life of a D1 college quarterback trying to get his first start. We’ll let the lawyers and everybody sort out that stuff, just got to keep this out of Bob Ley’s hands. That motherfucker will tear me apart on OTL.
