A lesbian professor has told the tale about being assaulted by a “redneck” following a Toby Keith concert.
TRN – The man began hurling a rich tapestry of obscene slurs at Poindexter, she told police.
Later that night, the professor said, the same man ambushed her in the parking lot of The Cabin — a local bar. The man thumped Poindexter in the eye, she said, and spat on her.
A shocking and horrific story, which Poindexter backed up by posting a Facebook photo of herself with an nasty black eye, and a description of the two incidents in great detail.
Poindexter then filed “hate crime” charges with local police. Central Michigan University held vigils in support of her, denouncing “homophobia” and even calling on Toby Keith to speak out against his “hateful fan.”
There was only one problem. It wasall a huge lie.
She gave herself the black eye, and made the entire story up.
Poindexter “punched herself in the eye,” according to local police. As TheDC reports:
Poindexter’s story began to unravel when police probed the incident. Investigators sat down with her to review security footage from the bar to identify the man, court documents say. Then, when the investigators informed Poindexter that there was also surveillance footage of the parking lot, she became anxious. She said she was no longer interested in viewing any video which might incriminate her assailant.
Later on, Poindexter admitted to concocting the story about getting punched and spat on.
Poindexter made up the story and cold-cocked herself in her own right eye “because she wanted to raise awareness about the social hardships of people in the LGBTQ+ community,”according to court documents.
