A Union City man has been charged with rape in connection with an alleged incident early Saturday at his home.
Michael Jason Pollard, 37, of 3326 Bethlehem Road, Lot 19, Union City, was arrested Thursday afternoon and charged with rape, according to a Union City Police Department report.
The charge stems from a Union City woman’s claim of being raped in the early morning hours Saturday.
According to an affidavit filed in Obion County General Sessions Court, the woman alleges Pollard was asked to give her a ride home from a local bar and he instead took her to his residence. She told authorities she was very intoxicated and alleged that Pollard raped her.
