Former Tennessee Titans cheerleader Elizabeth Leigh Garner was arrested this week for sexually abusing a 12-year-old boy.

Garner, 42, allegedly followed the boy upstairs into the bathroom while visiting a friend and attempted to seduce him. She is said to have fondled him before leaving.

Local police said that Garner, who is married, told detectives that “she was drunk that evening and that she got the boy confused with a man that was also at the residence."

Garner was indicted on charges of sexual battery and solicitation of a minor. She was ultimately freed on a $30,000 bond, and insists she is innocent of all charges.

"That's just absolutely no excuse for sexual assaulting a child. If you can't tell the difference between a 12-year-old and an adult then there are problems," Kyle Evans, a member of the Murfreesboro Police Department, told NewsChannel 5.

During his stint as a Titans cheerleader, Garner gained notoriety for being a 38-year-old on a squad comprised of girls 10 or so years her junior.
