A former Cincinnati Bearcats football staff member is appealing his firing, who was arrested for misdemeanor sexual abuse charge in Northern Kentucky. An attorney for Antrione Archer said the university acted too quickly in making the decision to fire his client.
Archer had requested a 60-day leave to resolve the issue. However, the school wanted no part of the leave and decision it would be in the best interest to let him go.
He was fired on Tuesday and held the position of the football’s Director of Player Welfare and Development. According to court records, he is accused of exposing his self and touching another adult in a grocery store in Kenton County, Kentucky this past May.
James Noll, the attorney, says Archer regrets the incident ever happened. He also added that the incident, which was recorded on the store’s security camera, was “having consensual close conversations in the pharmacy aisles followed by consensual dacing of a rhythmic nature.”
