MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Former Tennessee Titans cheerleader Elizabeth Garner was back in a Rutherford County courtroom for a probation violation hearing Friday.

Garner, 43, failed a drug screening for use of the prescription painkiller Suboxone.

It was revealed Friday that Garner later obtained a prescription for the drug and has passed six additional drug screenings.

Under her original diversion terms, Garner pleaded guilty to a charge of reckless endangerment and agreed to undergo regular drug screenings.

If she violates the terms of her original agreement she ran the risk of felony charges being instated against her.

Garner was arrested in Murfreesboro in February 2013 for allegedly abusing a 12-year-old boy. According to reports, she followed the boy into a restroom at a party and sexually assaulted him.

She pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of reckless endangerment and was sentenced to 18 months of probation. She is required to get regular drug screenings as part of that probation.

In an exclusive interview with News 2 last November, Garner professed her innocence.

"What I want them to know is that I would never, ever in my life, do that to a child," she said, adding, "I don't have it in me."

Garner was reported missing by family and friends last month but found the next day.
