This week is the anniversary of the famous NFL cheerleader’s sex arrest that occurred three years ago in a Tampa bar.
TAMPA – In one of the most appreciated arrests in sports history, two NFL Carolina Panther cheerleaders were cuffed, mugged and accused of having lesbian sex in a public bathroom.
Does it get any better than that !
The incident happened back in November ’05 in a Tampa bar called Banana Joe’s and the girls were booked with a laundry list of charges including resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, assault, giving a false name and causing harm to another; a third-degree felony punishable by 1 to 5 years.
Renee Thomas of Pittsboro, NC and Angela Keathley of Belmont, NC were hanging out and slammin’ drinks at Joe’s when they took a stroll to the bathroom together like all women do.
According to a Tampa Police Report and witnesses, a gang of local Tampa ho’s got pissed off at the sexy couple for frolicking a little bit too long in the stall.
Hearing moaning coming from the closed stall, the gang started calling the pom-pom girls “whores” and “bitches” and later reported one of the girls were “going down on the other” right there in the stall.
After exiting their private quarters, one of the pom-pomers slugged one of the whining bitches, triggering a cat-fight melee.
Later, the Tampa cops showed up and Thomas resisted arrest; guess she didn’t want to be cuffed, not with metal ones that hurt anyway.
Both women ate jail food the next morning before posting out and being released. (see them in our Sports Mugshots and Cheerleader Gallery)
Keathley and Thomas were both booted off the cheer squad for violating a cheerleader code that “bans conduct embarrassing to the team or organization” and were immediately approached by Penthouse Magazine to do a spread and story.
This story generated so much interest nationwide that the Panthers NFL site crashed after receiving millions of hits.
On the Panthers Cheerleader site, both cheerleaders had listed the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation as their favorite charity. Maybe they were giving each other complimentary breast exams and this whole thing was a misunderstanding.
Both girls did plea out with Thomas being sentenced to 12 months probation, 50 hours of community service, and ordered to pay $400 restitution. She was also ordered to attend an anger management class and was barred from financially benefiting from the incident.
Keathley also copped a plea and was sentenced to probation.
All this time us guys thought you girls went to the john together to gossip!
