Oklahoma RB Rodney Anderson facing rape allegation

A protective order has been issued against Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson in Cleveland County (Oklahoma) District Court accusing him of rape. "Mr. Anderson did not, nor would he ever, force himself on any woman".

University of Oklahoma officials said that they are aware of the situation and are investigating the matter.

She claims she met Anderson at a bar November 16 and later went home with him. "We went to a second bar and I was planning on ubering home myself, Rodney's friends were insistent that he take me home", the document reads.

The petition says Anderson, 21, walked the woman home after meeting her for the first time at a bar and drinking.

In the statement, Chance said the woman filed the protective order after she had attempted to pursue a relationship with Anderson and Anderson "declined several social invitations" from the woman.

Charges have not yet been filed against Anderson but he was reportedly ordered to pay the court costs in the protective order filing, and a hearing has been scheduled for December 18th.

"Mr. Anderson first learned of (the woman's) request for a civil protective order late yesterday evening", Chance said in the statement.

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. It is incumbent on our community to reserve judgment and to treat this allegation on its own merit.
