Former Indiana head basketball coach Bob Knight found himself in some hot water after multiple women accused him of groping them at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency in Fort Belvoir, Virginia.
The U.S. Spy agency, located just outside Washington, invited Knight to speak at its headquarters in 2015, and four female employees who were in attendance that night said Knight groped and touched them inappropriately before and after his speech.
The allegations led to an investigation by the FBI and the U.S. Army.
More details from The Washington Post:
The women accused Knight of a range of boorish behavior: from touching them on the shoulder while commenting on the attractiveness of their legs, to hugging them too tightly around the chest, to hitting them on the buttocks, according to documents compiled by investigators and Washington Post interviews with three of the women.
The criminal investigations into Knight lasted a year, culminating in a July 2016 interview with FBI agents at his home in Montana, law enforcement officials said. The retired college coach denied wrongdoing and federal prosecutors in Virginia decided not to bring charges, according to Knight’s attorney and federal officials familiar with the case.
The story goes even deeper into problems this caused within the NGA, which is a part of the Department of Defense. Read all about it here.
Knight did not comment (shocker).
