NBC has obtained an e-mail that Mike McQueary sent to his former teammates last night.Here’s what it said (as told by a series of tweets by reporter Peter Alexander):

“I did the right thing…you guys know me…the truth is not out there fully… I didn’t just turn and run… I made sure it stopped…I had to make quick tough decisions…”

McQueary testified before a grand jury that he witnessed former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky raping a 10-year-old boy in the shower of a PSU football facility in 2002.

He has since taken heat for not doing enough to stop the alleged assault at the time, and for not going to the police afteward.
