INDIANAPOLIS - An Indianapolis Colts linebacker is facing felony charges including rape for an incident late last month. Josh McNary has been charged with felony counts of rape and criminal confinement and a misdemeanor count of battery resulting in bodily injury. The charges are for an incident that was reported December 1, 2014. McNary signed with the Colts as a free agent in April 2013. He played in five games last year and 15 this past season, including four starts. He has recorded 42 total tackles and a half-sack in his time with Indianapolis. McNary played his college football at Army.
The Colts released this statement:
We are aware that there has been a report about Josh McNary, but unfortunately that’s the limit of our knowledge. At this time we are very concerned and trying to find out what the relevant facts are, but we have insufficient information to venture any opinion. As we learn more we will make appropriate updates.
According to court documents, the alleged victim went out drinking with friends in downtown Indianapolis on the night of November 30, 2014. She wound up at Tiki Bob’s Bar. The woman showed police Snapchat videos she took that night at the bar, and told investigators that a young African-American man seated at the bar could be the man who assaulted her. According to the alleged victim, she found herself in a “really nice apartment” later that night with a man she didn’t know. When he tried to kiss her face and neck, she turned away. The woman said he became more aggressive. Eventually she realized she was in a bedroom without her clothes. She said she struggled physically with the man, who then allegedly raped her. The woman told police she told him “no” several times. At first, the woman said he refused to allow her to leave. She left the apartment after he got up to go to the bathroom. As she left, she took his cell phone. The woman reported the incident to the police and underwent a sexual assault examination, which revealed injuries to her vagina and ear. According to the probable cause affidavit, the woman had trouble verifying the route she took from the bar to the man’s apartment. She also could not identify McNary’s photo from an array as the man who assaulted her. Police traced the cell phone to Josh McNary. When they spoke to him at his apartment, he said, “I know why you’re here.” Detectives found bedclothes on the floor of the living room. McNary told police that he’d preserved the sheets for them “because I knew you would be coming.” McNary also pointed to a pile of clothing, saying, “That’s her stuff right there.” The woman had told police that she believed she’d left some clothing at the man’s apartment.
Welp, here we go again. Time for the Patriots to step in and play the heroes for the rest of America, protecting you from horrible people hoisting the Lombardi Trophy. We’ll take out Suggs and the abuser protecting Ravens, then we’ll take out the rapist Colts and the drug addict owner, then we’ll get to the Super Bowl and Russel Wilson will probably murder 15 women the night before the game and we’ll beat them too. And what thanks will we get? Everyone in America will call us the evil ones and say we’re stuck up and full of ourselves. But, no matter. We’ll save everyone with or without appreciation. We’re not the heroes you want, but we’re the heroes you need.
PS – How about McNary having all the evidence “saved” because he knew the cops would be coming? Not sure if that’s a genius or idiotic move. Time will tell.
