Jerry Jones Hit With Sexual Assault Suit

The lawsuit was filed September 30 by Patricia Gavin. It is described by Courthouse News thusly: “Sexual assault, theft, false imprisonment, and privacy actions where the plaintiff asserts she was pinned against the wall in a restaurant by the defendant and sexually assaulted, among other things.” The suit was filed pro se, which I think pretty much says all you need to know.

UPDATE (10/2/10): Patricia Gavin herself sent me a copy of the filing. It is, without question, one of the more interesting court filings I have ever read. Let me explain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up:

Gavin says she’s a former captain in the U.S. Air Force. She claims that Jerry Jones assaulted her at Ocean Prime on the same night that was captured by that famous Deadspin video of a slurring Jones. She also claims that she’s an art dealer; that on the night in question, someone stole her purse, which contained a check for $2 million (British sterling); and that, in an effort to cover this whole thing up, Jones’ financial advisors dosed her with GHB. Oh, also? Somebody got an STD from an assault in the bathroom at Al Biernat’s.

I am not making this up. Is Gavin making it up? If she is, she has a very vivid imagination indeed.

UPDATE (10/2/10): It probably bears mentioning that on September 20 a judge issued a restraining order against Patricia Gavin, prohibiting her from having contact with Jones, his family, or anyone associated with the Dallas Cowboys.
