Jeff Elrod was accused by a friend he had eaten with in August
A New York artist is facing charges because he is reportedly pulling the breast of a friend from her shirt and kissing him in a Texas restaurant.
Jeff Elrod was accused by a friend with whom he had eaten in August in the artist city of Marfa in Texas.
She filed a complaint with the police in October and he is accused of simple robbery, a crime that is fined $ 500 and is a non-arrestable crime.
She says they had a good meal together and sat down for a drink at the bar when he exposed her chest and put his mouth on it.
He said to her: & # 39; I need to kiss your breasts & # 39 ;, she said.
The woman said she then went to his studio, where he & # 39; tried to touch her leg & # 39 ;.
She went outside, & # 39; in shock & # 39 ;, she said.
She waited a few months before reporting to the police because she was afraid of retribution.
The pair was in the popular artists' village of Marfa in Texas (famous in part for the Prada shop shown above)
Since then, she has signed a waiver in which she declares that she does not want any form of civil settlement or compensation from him.
Elrod's representatives rejected the case as an attempt at extortion.
& # 39; The Class C crime & # 39; violation & # 39; would be the Texas equivalent of a quick card.
& # 39; We believe this is nothing less than an attempted extortion by the claimant, & # 39; told his lawyer The New York Daily News.
