Oklahoma Leading Rusher Rodney Anderson Accused of Rape
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – A woman who filed a petition for a protective order against Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson is accusing him of rape.
The petition filed Monday says the 21-year-old Anderson walked the woman home after she had been drinking on Nov. 16. It says the woman remembers kissing Anderson and vomiting.
The woman says she later recalled Anderson forcing himself on her and “feeling like I couldn’t get away.”
In a statement, Anderson’s attorney, Derek Chance, says the allegations are “patently false” and that Anderson is “shocked and disturbed” by the claims. A hearing on the protective order is scheduled for Dec. 18.
Anderson leads the Sooners with 960 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns and has 283 yards and five touchdowns receiving.
Oklahoma of course plays Georgia in the college football playoffs on January 1st in the Rose Bowl.
