Oklahoma RB Rodney Anderson Accused of Rape, Order of Protection Filed

Documents show that someone has filed a protective order against starting Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson.

Anderson, through a statement issued by his attorney, says the allegation is "patently false".

In a written statement to the court, the alleged victim claimed that she met Anderson at one bar on the night of November 16 and then went with him to a second bar. She said she was planning to take an Uber home, but Anderson's friends "were insistent that he take" her home. I remember feeling like I couldn't get away.

According to the Tulsa World, the accuser, who wrote in her statement that she is "scared" for her safety because Anderson knows where she lives, is a University of Oklahoma employee. He was ordered to pay the court costs in the order filing. Mr. Anderson is shocked and disturbed by [the alleged victim's] claims. The allegations are patently false.

The woman said she later recalled incidents she say happened inside her apartment, including forceful contact and biting. Under relationship to the petitioner, "alleged rapist" is written. While we can only speculate as to (the alleged victim's) motives in seeking a civil protective order, her claims surfaced only after Mr. Anderson did not reciprocate a desire to pursue a relationship with (her). "In fact, Mr. Anderson declined several social invitations from [the woman] between November 16th and December 4th".

"In my wildest dreams, I never thought I'd have to set up a Twitter account to defend myself".

Further details emerged Tuesday morning, with the woman describing the running back as the "alleged rapist" and herself as the "victim of rape". In the most possible straightforward and honest matter, I did not do this. The woman filed a police report Monday afternoon alleging rape by instrumentation. Following that ride, some consensual kissing had occurred and she remembered waking up naked. No arrests have been made.

The University of Oklahoma sent Fox 23 News the following statement: "We are aware [of the filing] and are gathering information". As of now, Anderson is still a member of the team.

In the final six weeks of the regular season, Anderson recorded 1,041 yards from scrimmage and 14 touchdowns.

Anderson had 93 rushing yards Saturday in OU's Big 12 title game win over TCU.

Anderson now leads the Sooners with 960 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns on the ground. Heading into the national semifinals against Georgia on January 1, it appears Oklahoma has another bad situation on its hands.

"There are undoubtedly true victims of sexual assault, for whom Mr. Anderson carries a tremendous amount of compassion", read the statement from Anderson's attorney. "However, there are those accused of sexual assault which they unequivocally did not commit - as is the case for Mr. Anderson".
