IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State University's military training program has expelled a promising cadet, accusing him of falsely claiming that he was sexually assaulted during an altercation that left him hospitalized.
The cadet testified that during a July 4 bonfire near his family's lake house in Nebraska, a 19-year-old acquaintance rubbed the cadet's genitals and inner legs with a beer bottle against his wishes. He said he pushed the man away, and that the man hit him on the head with a bottle. The cadet received several stitches to his face at a hospital.
