Oklahoma RB Rodney Anderson facing rape allegation

Posted December 06, 2017

Oklahoma Sooners running back Rodney Anderson reportedly had a protective order filed against him on Monday in Cleveland County. Mr. Anderson did not, nor would he ever, force himself on any woman.

Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson (24) evades pressure from TCU defensive end Mat Boesen (9) in the second half of the Big 12 Conference championship NCAA college football game, Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017, in Arlington, Texas.

According to Oklaw.org, the state of Oklahoma defines a protective order as "a civil court order that is created to stop violent and harassing behavior and to protect you and your family from the abuser".

During the presidential race, then-candidate Donald Trump cited the killing as a reason to toughen USA immigration policies. A spokeswoman for San Francisco Superior Court could not immediately be reached for comment on the verdict.

An Oklahoma spokesman said Monday night that the school is aware of the allegation and is gathering information.

Anderson's Oklahoma City-based attorney, Derek Chance, released a statement to multiple news outlets Tuesday morning refuting the claims and stating Anderson's innocence.

An online case record says Cleveland County District Court Judge Jequita Napoli will hold a hearing on December 18. As she attempted to leave, the woman claims Anderson followed her.

The station also writes that Paul Caruso, a geophysicist with the USGS , says there is potential for aftershocks. The quake jolted downtown Dover, sending lawmakers and workers in the statehouse outdoors to see what happened.

Anderson's lawyer called the allegation "patently false", according to ESPN. "However, there are those accused of sexual assault which they unequivocally did not commit - as is the case for Mr. Anderson". "We are confident that when authorities have all of the information surrounding this circumstance, Mr. Anderson will be completely exonerated of any wrongdoing, and he looks forward to the conclusion of this investigation so he can focus on his obligations as a student-athlete".

Chance claims the woman wanted to have a relationship with Anderson after the November 16 encounter and only filed the protective order after Anderson turned her down.

Anderson has rushed for 960 yards and 11 TDs, while adding 16 catches for 283 receiving yards and five receiving TDs this season for the Sooners' electric offense. He has 1,041 yards from scrimmage and 14 touchdowns over the past six games. Mixon is now with the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals.
