Networks investigating Neil deGrasse Tyson over sexual misconduct claims

The Web site Patheos reported on Thursday that Dr. Katelyn N. Allers, an associate physics professor at Bucknell, was “felt up” by Tyson after taking a photo with him at a 2009 party.

“After we had taken the picture, he noticed my tattoo and kind of grabbed me to look at it, and was really obsessed about whether I had Pluto on this tattoo or not . . . and then he looked for Pluto, and followed the tattoo into my dress,” Allers told the Web site.
