You know how the CFL team in Saskatchewan is called the Roughriders? Well, evidently the team’s GM wanted to really put his stamp on the name. Unfortunately, he tried to do so by sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl, or so the Regina police claim.
According to the SASKATOON STAR PHOENIX, via the REGINA LEADER-POST, Saskatchewan Roughriders GM Eric Tillman was charged in connection with an incident dating to Aug. 6, right about the time that the 2008 CFL season was hitting midseason form.
There are few details about the alleged assault, but we know that Tillman was arrested, charged and then released to appear back in court. The GM clearly hasn’t fled the country, because he re-signed lineman Jeremy O’Day today, and heck, when you’re in a place like Saskatchewan, it’s probably hard to avoid being noticed trying to get away. (We have a feeling he’d be pretty anonymous in Venezuela, though.)
