Jags Dareus named in sexual assault lawsuits

The Tampa Bay Times reports that he is being sued by a woman who says she met Dareus when he was in Tampa for the college football title game in January 2017.

According to briefs, they met at a club in Tampa and went to a party at a house rented by Dareus.  He accused of grabbing her breast and attempting “to put his hands between her legs” against her wishes. The lawsuit goes on to claim that the woman, who had been drinking and “blacked out”, later woke up in bed with a naked Dareus and “”began to immediately realize that there had been sexual physical acts upon her person.”

No criminal charges have been filed.  The hearing on Dareus’ request to have the suit dismissed is on August 9.
