Is he a rapist or a pawn in a military game to discredit the Air Force Academy sex scandal? For the first time, Douglas Meester answers the charges.
Meester, The Bartender, pulled out a bottle of Jose Cuervo tequila, some shot glasses, salt, and a lime. He had talked with Woods once before, but only briefly, so they got reacquainted while Rando cut up the lime. Then Woods turned off the overhead lights, flicked on a desk lamp, and poured the first round.
Two or three shots later, according to OSI documents, Rando explained to Woods what a "body shot" was, and Woods said she was game. Rando licked the salt from her neck, downed the shot, and sucked the lime slice she held in her mouth. Doing the body shot made her uncomfortable, Woods later told OSI, but she didn't want the guys to think she was uptight. She did another body shot with Rando, only this time she did the licking and sucking, and licked the salt off his bare chest. After watching Rando and Woods do at least three body shots each, Meester decided to jump in. "I'll show you how to do a body shot," he said. He lifted up Woods' sweatshirt and sports bra - Meester and Wager would tell OSI that she helped Meester lift her clothes - and, without protest from Woods, Meester did a body shot off of her left breast.
Several times throughout the night Woods glanced at her watch. Although she and her boyfriend, Zeke Cuny, had pledged to end their romance, they hadn't done so. That night the couple had plans to meet in her room at 1 a.m. As the night continued, though, Woods told OSI, she was "clingy" with Rando. She sat in his lap. They kissed. Rando told her that she was all he had wanted for months. Twice, Rando left the drinking party and went across the hall to his room, trying unsuccessfully to get his roommate to leave so that he could be alone with Woods. At least twice, while Rando was gone, Woods allowed Meester to kiss her. Once when Rando came back into Meester's room, Woods asked him, "Are you jealous because I'm kissing Meester?"
Around 1:30 a.m. - half an hour past Woods' rendezvous time with her boyfriend - the booze was gone. Rando left, and Wager followed to use the bathroom. Woods stayed with Meester. In the two and a half hours that the cadets had been together, Wager did three shots, Rando did at least 10, and Meester and Woods each did six. For Meester, that was six on top of the 10 he drank by himself earlier, and for Woods, who is 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighs 118 pounds, that was six on top of the seven-ounce squirt bottle of mystery booze she downed.
When Wager returned from the bathroom he found Meester and Woods standing in the middle of the room, making out. Wager told them that he had no intention of leaving. Meester and Woods looked at him and laughed, so he got into bed, turned his face to the wall, and fell asleep.
On his bed, Meester removed Woods' sweatpants and performed oral sex on her. At that point, as Woods told OSI, the alcohol had rendered her "completely numb." She wasn't sure, but thought she felt Meester's tongue inside her. About this time, Rando told OSI, he came back into Meester's room and saw Woods in bed moving her arms around, apparently in response to something Meester was doing. He left the room and did not come back in, because, he said, the next time he approached Meester's door he heard Woods moaning.
Woods doesn't remember how intercourse began, because, according to her OSI statement, she had blacked out; she remembers waking up in the missionary position. "[I felt] incredibly guilty and dirty, as if my boyfriend was in the room watching us," she said, "and also feeling incredibly insecure, wondering, Does he know my name? So I asked him, 'What's my name?' He said, 'Jacqueline.' But then I blacked out again."
"Doggy-style intercourse" occurred next, according to Meester's OSI statement, and at one point, Meester says, she "reinserted" him into her. According to Woods: "I woke up as he was flipping me onto my stomach and tossing my body around like I was a rag doll and he attempted to penetrate me from that position. It could be because he was very drunk and 'missed,' but I remember being very embarrassed because I thought that he had penetrated my anus, which is something that I have always been very against." Meester was not wearing a condom and when he told Woods that he had ejaculated, according to Woods' OSI statement, she was "very scared."
Wager, meanwhile, slept through the whole incident. The only sound he reported hearing was, at some point, Woods saying, "No." As Wager told investigators, he did not hear the context. Meester told OSI that he never heard Woods say no, and Woods reported that she didn't remember saying it.
