Woman in Cox’s Case Feared She was Drugged

A court document released Friday sheds new light on why Broncos cornerback Perrish Cox was arrested last fall on sexual assault charges involving a woman who told officers she was likely drugged, raped and impregnated with the football player’s child.

The woman told investigators that doctors put the date of conception around the time she went to Cox’s apartment with friends in the early hours of Sept. 6, according to the arrest warrant affidavit.

The affidavit said DNA tests indicated Cox was the father.

The woman said she has no recollection of most of that night and wasn’t sure anyone had sex with her until she learned she was pregnant. She said she had not had consensual sex for several weeks before or after the date of conception reported by doctors.

The woman said she and Cox’s girlfriend at the time had gone to a club Sept. 5, and they met Cox and Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas(notes). When the club closed at 1:30 a.m., they all went to Cox’s apartment. She said Cox’s roommate, Broncos defensive back Cassius Vaughn(notes), was there when she awoke later in the day.

The woman said she believed she had been drugged because she felt unusually woozy after four drinks. She said she recalled being kissed and fondled by Thomas before she passed out.

Thomas told police he had kissed the woman, according to the affidavit. He didn’t immediately return messages Friday.

Cox’s lawyer, Harvey Steinberg, declined to comment on any of the information in the arrest affidavit.

“My thoughts have always been that cases work their way through the court system and we need to do our best to ensure people who are charged get fair trials. I’m just hopeful the process works,” he told The Associated Press.
