Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson accused of rape

OU football: Protective order filed against OU running back Rodney Anderson

Interestingly, on Monday, a victim's protective order was filed against Oklahoma's leading rusher Rodney Anderson.

As Jake Trotter of ESPN.com notes, the woman said in the filing that she was drinking at a bar on November 16 when she met Anderson, whom she had never met before. She said she was planning on going home alone, but Anderson took her home. While discussing the events of the night with a friend weeks later, she was "recalling images and feelings of him forcing his fingers" inside her, the court filing says.

TCU linebacker Ty Summers (42) and safety Ridwan Issahaku (31) combine to stop Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson (24) after a short run in the second half of the Big 12 Conference championship NCAA college football game, Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017, in Arlington, Texas. He also has 16 receptions for 283 yards and five scores for No. 2 Oklahoma, which will face No. 3 Georgia in a College Football Playoff semifinal game at the Rose Bowl on January 1.

The statement alleges Anderson then followed the woman and asked her what she thought she was doing.

The Associated Press does not identify people who say they have been sexually assaulted without their permission to publish their name.

Terrorists attacked an army convoy in Jammu and Kashmir's Qazigund before at least three of them took cover in a building. While the encounter was underway, officials said, a large crowd of local residents tried to disrupt the operation.

The emergency protective order was filed and issued Monday, with the woman writing "I remember feeling like I couldn't get away".

A lawyer representing Anderson called the allegation false and sais Anderson "will be exonerated of any wrongdoing".

After details of the allegations surfaced, Anderson's attorney, Derek Chance of Oklahoma City, released a lengthy statement in which he described the allegations as "patently false".

Anderson is the leading running back for the Sooners this season with 960 yards and 11 touchdowns. Oklahoma plays Georgia in a national semifinal on January 1.

The Oklahoman reported that Anderson denies the rape claim and contends that the accusation is being made because "he rejected the woman's attempts to pursue a relationship with him". Mixon is now with the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals.
