Details of Restraining Order Against Nate Miles

The restraining order taken out against UConn freshman basketball player Nate Miles by a female UConn student stems from several incidents in which the alleged victim was "physically and sexually assaulted," according to a written statement by the 19-year-old woman.

The woman, a Manchester resident, said in an affidavit that she began a relationship with Miles on Sept. 6 and, within about a week, began encountering incidents of alleged abuse.

The affidavit reports multiple instances of Miles' aggressive behavior, including digging his nails into her skin when he became angry and, on at least three occasions, making physical contact with her – one time allegedly slapping her and pushing her out of bed after she had hit him.

The statement also alleges that Miles became "extremely possessive," and on one occasion tried to physically pressure her to have sex.

In the affidavit, the alleged victim states that on Sept. 14 she went to Miles' dorm room and he began pressuring her for sex. At one time when she resisted, he allegedly "tapped" her in the face, according to the statement, and later dug his nails into her skin. When she hit him back, Miles "slapped me and pushed me off the bed," the woman said in her statement.

She said she left the room and the argument continued for about 30 minutes in the hallway. Two days later, the alleged victim said she confronted Miles about the nail-digging and he said she was "weak," according to the statement.

The woman said she filed a report with UConn police on Sept. 21. Miles was issued the restraining order on Sept. 22 at about 8 p.m. About 15 minutes after receiving the order, he called the woman – violating the terms of the order – and was arrested and later released on $2,500 surety bond.
