In an interview KCAL, a former high school coach claimed that Thousand Oaks shooter Ian David Long attacked and sexually groped her 10 years ago, but that she never reported it, instead just kicking him off the track team.
Long is reportedly responsible for a mass shooting at Thousand Oaks bar that left 12 dead, and then turned the gun on himself.
Speaking with local reporters, Dominique Colell recalled the incident that began with a dispute over a cell phone and ended with Long groping her as he grappled with her over the phone.
“He attacked me. He attacked his high school track coach,” said Colell. “Who does that?”
According to Colell, she found the phone and was attempting to see who owned it, when Long blew up at her.
“Ian came up and started screaming at me that was his phone,” Colelle explained. “He just started grabbing me. He groped my stomach. He groped my butt. I pushed him off me and said after that — ‘you’re off the team.’ “
But Colell says she was encouraged by other coaches and officials at Newbury Park High School to accept his apology and not do anything that would ruin his future in the Marine Corps.
“I should have reported it then,” said Colell.

‘Fundamentally’ immoral: Federal asylum officers sue Trump administration over immigration policy
On Wednesday, the Washington Post reported that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services asylum officers are filing suit against the Trump administration, alleging that the president's policy requiring asylum seekers be held in Mexico awaiting their hearing is a risk to their lives.
The officers told a federal court that the policy, which was implemented ostensibly to relieve overcrowding at U.S. detention facilities, is "fundamentally contrary to the moral fabric of our Nation and our international and domestic legal obligations."
Here’s how Trump’s latest comments dredge up his nasty treatment of John McCain
Speaking to the Faith and Freedom Coalition on Wednesday, President Donald Trump once again made comments revealing he has little interest in treading sensitively around his feud with the late Sen. John McCain.
He lamented that fact that, during his first two years as president, he struggled to get the votes he wanted for his agenda because he only had 51 (initially 52) Republicans in the Senate.
"And sometimes, you know, they had a little hard time with a couple of them, right?" Trump added, referring to GOP senators who didn't bow to his will. “Fortunately they’re gone now. They have gone on to greener pastures. Or perhaps far-less-green pastures. But they are gone. They are gone ... I’m very happy they are gone.”
Is San Francisco’s vaping ban backed by science?
San Francisco has decided to ban the sale of e-cigarettes in 2020, hoping to curb a surge in vaping among adolescents. But is the policy backed up by the available evidence?
- How harmful is vaping? -
Unlike tobacco cigarettes, e-cigarettes do not "burn." The devices, which have been available in the US since 2006, work instead by heating up a liquid that then turns into vapor and is inhaled.
Because of this, e-cigarette users don't get exposed to the estimated 7,0000 chemical constituents present in combustible cigarettes, and vaping is generally believed to be safer than smoking.
