Sexual assault charges reinstated against former MSU, Pistons star Mateen Cleaves
Charges initially dropped in December
DETROIT – Sexual assault charges against Mateen Cleaves have been reinstated, officials announced Monday.
Charges against Cleaves were dropped Dec. 5 after a judge said there was no probable cause to bind the case over for trial.
The woman said that after she had drinks with Cleaves at a bar, she left with him, thinking that he was driving her back to the golf course. Instead, they ended up at a motel, where she said Cleaves forced himself on her, dragging her back into the motel room when she tried to get away.
"I ran out of the room," she said. "He came out of the room a second time. I mouthed, 'Help me.'"
The defense asked for all charges to be thrown out because the accuser didn't initially tell investigators that she was sexually assaulted.
No court dates have been set, officials said.
