Report: Former LSU running back sexually harassed 70-year-old woman while playing for Tigers
A recent report from Sports Illustrated indicates that Derrius Guice allegedly sexually harassed a 70-year-old woman during a high school championship game at the New Orleans Superdome in 2017.
The incident reportedly occurred before LSU played in the Citrus Bowl that year, which would have been Guice’s final game with the Tigers.
Below is an excerpt from Sports Illustrated:
“At 3:30 pm she was sitting on a chair at her post when Derrius Guice and several other men approached her. He began saying that he ‘likes older women’ and asked if she would have sex with him. She was shocked and told him that was not funny. He continued to gesture at his private area and grab himself in front of her saying that ‘older women are my thing’ and that they could just ‘go off and do it’ somewhere. She told him that she is a grandmother and 70 years old and that he shouldn’t talk to people that way. The other men began to laugh. She tried to tell him how disgusting it was that he would treat her that way but he kept talking about sex as he got into an elevator and left.
“She reported to her supervisor and that person called the Coach at LSU. He said that Derrius was probably just kidding around and that Derrius came from a broken home. She said that she did not care and that he should be punished for his behavior. She said that he did it with such ease that she felt like he had done this before. The coach asked what she wanted, ‘an apology?’ She told him that she wanted Derrius to sit out from a game — the bowl game. He dismissed her and no one has returned her call or done anything.”
On Aug. 19, 2020, USA TODAY reported that two women accused Guice of rape when he was a freshman at LSU. Earlier that month, Guice was released by Washington following his arrest on domestic violence charges.
Before Derrius Guice played his final game at #LSU (the Citrus Bowl after the 2017 season), he sexually harassed a 70-year-old attendant during a HS championship game.
It was reported to university. "Guice was never put thru
