Clayton City Council Member Accused of Groping

CLAYTON -- A longtime Clayton city councilman is charged with groping a Northmont schools employee while she was working.

Englewood police say it all started because Councilman Bob Peters came to Northmont's central office to give the woman a tomato from his garden.  But the woman told investigators she ended up getting a whole lot more than fresh produce.

Bob Peters, 82, has been sitting on Clayton's city council since 1978.  But his reputation is on the line after being charged with disorderly conduct.  Englewood police say he inappropriately touched a Northmont schools employee.

"Being that old you should know right from wrong, obviously.  I don't know if he's married but that's disrespectful beyond belief," said former Northmont student Courtney Cardona.

We spoke with the longtime councilman at his home.  He declined an on-camera interview, but said this is all a misunderstanding.  He claims he simply gave the victim a friendly kiss.  But the victim told police a much different story.  She says after Peters gave her the tomato at her office, he then touched her breast and "tried to kiss her mouth with his tongue out."

According to the police report, "She was able to turn her face and his tongue licked her cheek."

The victim told police Peters then said, "I may be older, but I haven't forgotten these things. ... You have a great body."

"I would have slapped the crap out of him.  That's what would have happened.  I think it's disgusting and unacceptable.  That's abusing the power he has," said Katy Smith of Englewood.

The victim told police she told Peters to leave immediately.  In a written statement, the victim said, "I'm still shocked it actually happened and that he actually thought he could DO this to me!"

The superintendent has banned Peters from setting foot on school property.

He's running for re-election in November.



UPDATE:

CLAYTON -- A longtime Clayton city councilman is facing charges after he's accused of groping a Northmont schools employee.

Councilman Bob Peters is charged with disorderly conduct for inappropriately touching the employee at the district's central office.  According to the police report, he stopped by to give the woman a tomato from his garden.

We spoke with the 82-year-old councilman at his home Tuesday afternoon.  He declined an on-camera interview, but said this is all a misunderstanding.  He claims he simply gave the woman a friendly kiss.

The woman told police a much different story.  She says they greeted each other with  hug on Aug. 30.  After Peters gave her the tomato, the woman told police he then touched her breast and "tried to kiss her mouth with his tongue out."

According to the police report, Peters then said "I may be older, but I haven't forgotten these things.  You have a great body."

The woman told police she immediately asked Peters to leave.  The superintendent has banned Peters from setting foot on school property.

Peters has been a Clayton councilman since 1978 and he is running for re-election in November.



CLAYTON -- Longtime Clayton city council member Bob Peters is facing charges after reportedly groping a Northmont City Schools employee.

The alleged incident happened on Aug. 30 at the Northmont City Schools' Central Office.  According to a police report, the woman says Peters touched her breast, grabbed her and tried to kiss her.  She told police she turned her face, and Peters licked her cheek.

The woman says Peters tried to kiss her a second time and told her "I may be older, but I haven't forgotten these things."  He also allegedly said "you have a great body."  The woman says she pushed Peters out of her office and into the hallway.

Peters has been on the Clayton city council since 1978.  He's running for re-election in November.

He is charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor.  Peters is also now banned from being on Northmont school property with the exception of public events or supervised visits arranged by the superintendent.
