Did Penn State's Mike McQueary Lie About Reporting Sandusky to Cops?

There are indications that Penn State assistant coach Mike McQueary was not telling the truth when he told friends that he "had discussions with police" after allegedly seeing Jerry Sandusky raping a boy in a shower.

In an email to former teammates released to The Associated Press on Tuesday, McQueary wrote that in addition to making sure the assault stopped, he "did have discussions with police and with the official at the university in charge of police" following the incident in 2002.

McQueary did not specify to which police department he spoke. But the head of the State College, Pennsylvania police department said he never spoke to them.

"He didn't come to State College police. The crime happened on campus and we don't have jurisdiction on campus," police chief Tom King said according to "We've had no reports (of Sandusky sexually abusing someone) from anybody."

The university has its own police force -- McQueary apparently never made a report to that department, either.

"This is the first we have heard of it," said Lisa Powers, Penn State's director of public information.
