“The accuser contacted the police at the time of the alleged incident on February 17 while I was still in the mall. I waited for the police to arrive and I fully cooperated with their investigation.
“After the investigation, the police decided not to charge me with any crimes. The arrest warrant was based on the word of the accuser.
“I was not attempting to avoid being served with the warrant.
“In fact as soon as I was made aware of the warranted I told my attorney to contact the Fairfax Virginia Police Department to address this matter. I immediately went to the police department and fully cooperated with the police.
“I was never processed by the police or placed into custody.
“I just signed the warrant and agreed to appear in court at a future time. I’m eager to put this matter behind me and continue my career.
