Rape allegations in protective order filed against Oklahoma running back Anderson

Report: Sooners RB Rodney Anderson had protective order filed against him

A woman has accused a star running back for the University of Oklahoma of rape, according to a protective order filed Monday.

According to ESPN.com's Jake Trotter, Anderson said in a statement through his attorney that the allegations are "patently false".

Online records show that the woman filed the protective order Monday in Cleveland County against the Sooners' starting running back.

The petition also states the woman planned on taking an Uber home, but that "Rodney's friends insisted that he take me home". Mr. Anderson is shocked and disturbed by Ms.Thornton's claims. She wrote she recalled "me not feeling like I could say anything and trying to get away from him to put clothes on but he followed me asking what I thought I was doing". Mr. Anderson did not, nor would he ever, force himself on any woman.

OU Athletic Department officials said they are aware of the situation and are gathering information.

Driving conditions were described as reasonable at the time, although visibility was somewhat restricted by mist and drizzle. AN INVESTIGATION IS under way this morning after four members of one family died in a road crash in Co Wexford last night.

Anderson has a hearing date set for December 18.

There are undoubtedly true victims of sexual assault, for whom Mr. Anderson carries a tremendous amount of compassion.

The move comes just weeks before the University of Oklahoma faces off against Georgia in the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day.

Anderson was the leading rusher for the Sooners this past season, gaining 960 yards on the ground with 11 touchdowns.

Oklahoma is set to play against Georgia in the Rose Bowl on January 1, 2018, as one of the two College Football Playoff semifinals.
