    Former Penn State football assistant coach Mike McQueary filed a lawsuit Tuesday against his former employer saying that he was made into a scapegoat during the Jerry Sandusky scandal. McQueary said he caught Jerry Sandusky in the locker room with a young boy back in 2001, and reported the incident to head coach Joe Paterno. But McQueary claims he was placed on administrative leave after university officials made false statements about what he had told them. He is seeking $4 million in damages, as well as compensation for early withdrawals from his retirement account, bowl game bonuses through the 2011 season, and legal expenses.
