Oklahoma RB Rodney Anderson facing rape allegation

A protective order filed against Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson on Monday includes a rape allegation, according to a Cleveland County court petition.

After details of the allegations surfaced, Anderson's attorney, Derek Chance of Oklahoma City, released a lengthy statement in which he described the allegations as "patently false". "Mr. Anderson is shocked and disturbed by [the woman's] claims", it read. He was ordered to pay the court costs in the order filing.

"The university is aware of the situation and is following our protocols in coordinating with the Norman Police Department, which is now handling the inquiry", Matt Epting, press secretary and special assistant to the president, said in an email to The Daily. "Some consensual kissing occurred after that contact", Jensen said.

The woman says that over the weekend, through a conversation with a friend, she started "recalling images and feelings of him forcing his fingers" insider her and biting her.

"Mr. Anderson first learned of Ms. (--) request for a civil protective order late yesterday evening". A hearing on the protective order is scheduled for December 18 in the District Court of Cleveland County.

"In my wildest dreams, I never thought I'd have to set up a Twitter account to defend myself". In the most possible straightforward and honest manner, I did not do this.

The school said Monday it is aware of the ongoing Norman police investigation. 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.

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

No. 2 Oklahoma is set to face No. 3 Georgia in the Rose Bowl New Year's Day, with the victor facing the Clemson-Alabama victor for the right to play for the 2017 College Football Playoff championship. However, there are those accused of sexual assault which they unequivocally did not commit- as is the case for Mr. Anderson.

Anderson, a redshirt sophomore, is the Sooners' leading rusher with 960 yards, and he's racked up 11 touchdowns.
