Just hours beforehand, one of Vaughn’s wait staff alleges Jackson shoved him out of private room where he and his entourage were dining in, as the employee smelled weed being smoked.
Jackson reportedly is a regular at the establishment, and even knows the owner’s step-daughter, according to Vaughn.
Vaughn added that her husband eventually was able to kick Jackson and his crew out of the restaurant following the reported forcible kiss. They then called the police after the group finally left.

“Our investigation has revealed substantial evidence refuting the claims of Jackson’s accuser including the statements of several witnesses,” Davies told The Kansas City Star. “We have reached out to law enforcement to provide the fruit of our investigation so that they may have a complete picture of the matter.”
The Kansas City Star reports that Jackson is currently only under investigation for the alleged sexual assault of the female owner, and not for the alleged assault of the waiter.
Vaughn is reportedly cooperating with police as they conduct their investigation into the matter.
