A woman has accused Silicon Valley star T.J. Miller of sexually assaulting, choking and punching her while they were both in college. She'd actually accused him after it happened and had brought it to a student court at George Washington University, but now she is accusing him publicly, giving the full story to The Daily Beast. She wishes to remain anonymous to avoid retribution, so The Daily Beast simply refers to her as "Sarah."
The story isn't new to everyone – some female comedians have refused to work with Miller throughout the years because they had heard about his alleged misconduct.
Sarah and Miller met in the same comedy troupe at George Washington, and started dating. One night, a couple of months into their relationship, they had "had a lot to drink," so Sarah's memory of that night is a bit spotty.
According to The Daily Beast:
However, Sarah said she has a distinct memory that as they were “fooling around” at her place, Miller began “shaking me violently” and punched her in the mouth during sex.
Sarah said that she woke up the following morning with a fractured tooth and a bloodied lip. When she asked Miller about it that morning, he claimed, according to Sarah, that she had simply fallen down drunkenly the past evening.
Although she was "unsettled," she continued to see Miller.

They soon met at a college party, and left in a cab to head back to the apartment she had been renting with her roommates.
