Muscular Development’s Ron Harris claims Rhoden has passed two different kinds of lie detector tests. In both instances, Rhoden maintained that the events were consensual in nature. However, the source of where Harris received this information is currently unknown.
“I spoke with someone who is very close to the case. I can not say who. But trust me, this is someone on the inside. This information is 100% accurate and reliable.
Shawn Rhoden did take not one, but two lie detector tests shortly after this alleged incident that occurred last October, and he passed both of them.
He took a standard polygraph, and he took a new type of lie detector test, used in various law enforcement circles, known as EyeDetect.”
