Marty Jannetty has addressed and clarified a Facebook post he made yesterday that has reportedly led to a police investigation.
Speaking in the interview, he said:
“We used to make fun of him because we knew he was gay, it’s known he was gay, he just never touched me before. We’re in the car, he grabbed me there, and I’m like ‘no, no, no.’ I have nothing against gay people, that don’t bother me, just don’t force the issue on me. He gently fondled me. I wanted to get out of the car and he got mad and angry. He jumped out of the car, grabbed me by my hair, I couldn’t get away. He’s dragging me to the back of the bowling alley and threw me to the ground and he was trying to pull my pants down. It was a brick laying there. What do you do when you’re 13? I can’t say he deserved to die, but he deserved to get his ass beat. When I was beating him in the head with a brick, I was only trying to beat his ass, I wasn’t trying to kill him. Can you imagine dragging a guy to a river and throwing him and then finding out on the news this guy is missing?”
Marty Jannetty added that he’d been approached by TMZ for an interview, but had been advised by friends to not do interviews or say anything on the matter, and his ‘Sheriff friend’ had told him there was a warrant out for his arrest.
