And you could also post that the arresting officer had no proof because the “victim” was too drunk to write a report, so when she wrote a report the next morning and asked in front of a judge she admitted that the bruises which don’t show up on a neck if something happened in the same hour where from sexual activity… thank you very much.

That comment was made four months after the original arrest.
