A woman who filed an emergency order of protection against Oklahoma Sooners running back Rodney Anderson is accusing the running back of rape, according to a report from ESPN.
Through a statement issued by his attorney Anderson said that the allegation is “patently false.”
In the protective order filing submitted Monday the accuser said that she was drinking at a bar on November 16th when she met Anderson for the first time. As the evening concluded she intended on taking an Uber home but states that Anderson’s friends “were insistent that he take” her home.
The woman said that this past weekend, through a conversation with a friend, she started “recalling images and feelings of him forcing his fingers” inside her and biting her. She said she tried to get away to put clothes on, but he followed her and asked what she was doing.
No charges have been filed as of this writing.
“Mr. Anderson first learned of [the woman’s] request for a civil protective order late yesterday evening,” attorney Derek Chance said in the statement. “Mr. Anderson is shocked and disturbed by [the woman’s] claims. Mr. Anderson did not, nor would he ever, force himself on any woman. There are undoubtedly true victims of sexual assault, for whom Mr. Anderson carries a tremendous amount of compassion. However, there are those accused of sexual assault which they unequivocally did not commit — as is the case for Mr. Anderson.”
An Oklahoma spokesman said Monday night that the school is aware of the allegation and is gathering information.
