Several years ago, in 2017, loyal LSU fan and part-time security employee Gloria Scott was approached by LSU football player Derrius Guice. Guice made incredibly crude, inappropriate, and unwelcome comments and gestures of a sexual nature to Scott. Following the shocking incident, Scott reached out to the LSU head coach and other higher-ups in the athletic department. No action was taken, according to this USA Today article by Kenny Jacoby.
Unfortunately, this was not Guice’s first incident of this nature. According to Jacoby’s article, he details that Guice has been accused of sexual assault by more than one student and has had multiple arrests due to domestic violence charges. No action was taken to rectify the situation with Scott, although the information was reported to the proper authorities at the university.
