Less than 24 hours after a jury determined David Mueller had assaulted and battered Taylor Swift, he maintains that he never grabbed her and can take a polygraph test to prove it.
After four hours of deliberation on Monday, an eight-member jury comprised of six women and two men unanimously decided Mueller did assault and batter the pop star in 2013 during a meet-and-greet. At the time, he and his then-girlfriend Shannon Melcher posed for a photo with the star, during which Swift said the assault occurred. Two days after the incident, he was fired from his job at KYGO radio station as co-host of Ryno and Jackson. Two years later, Mueller sued the star, claiming that she was responsible for his firing. However, the Grammy winner countersued Mueller a month later for assault and battery. On Friday, Judge William Martinez dismissed Mueller's claim against Swift, citing lack of evidence and witness testimony.
