A separate civil suit was later filed against Bryant by the woman.

It was revealed that Bryant leaned the woman over a chair to have sex with her, which allegedly caused the bleeding.

This was the sex act in question, as the accuser claims she told Bryant to stop but he would not, and Bryant claims he stopped after asking if he could ejaculate on her face.

He was immediately released on $25,000 bond, and news of the arrest became public two days after that.

On July 18, the Eagle County District Attorney's office filed a formal charge against Bryant for sexual assault.

When asked about bruises on the accuser's neck, Bryant admitted to "strangling" her during the encounter, stating that held her "from the back" "around her neck", that strangling during sex was his "thing" and that he had a pattern of strangling a different sex partner (not his wife) during their recurring sexual encounters.

When asked how hard he was holding onto her neck, Bryant stated, "My hands are strong.

If convicted, Bryant faced probation to life in prison.

On July 18, after he was formally charged, Bryant held a news conference in which he adamantly denied having raped the woman.

The evidence recovered by police included the T-shirt that Bryant wore the night of the incident, which had three small stains of the accuser's blood on it.
