NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP/WVLT) -- A former Tennessee Titans cheerleader was charged with aggravated sexual battery and soliciting a minor for inappropriately grabbing a 12-year-old boy and making sexual advances toward him at his home in Murfreesboro.

According to a police report, 42-year-old Elizabeth Garner was arrested last Thursday after police and state Children's Services investigators were notified about the incident earlier in February.

The boy told investigators that Garner grabbed at his crotch and offered to perform sex acts on him while she was at his home. Garner, who last performed with the Titans cheerleading squad in 2008, told police that she was drunk and she got the boy "confused" with a man who also lived there.

An attorney listed for Garner in court records did not immediately return a call from the AP.
