LSU running back Alphonso “Tae” Provens has been released on bond after being arrested on third degree rape charges, according to East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
Provens was placed in custody at 1:22 p.m. on Wednesday and booked into EBR Parish Prison before being released on a $15,000 listed bond.
The incident is alleged to have occurred on March 24 between 3-4:40 a.m. in Provens’ apartment at Nicholson Gateway on LSU’s campus.
The victim and another female went back to Provens apartment in Riverbend Hall after spending part of their night in Tigerland, according to the arrest report obtained by NOLA.com | The Times Picayune.
The victim said when she asked to use the restroom, Provens offered her to use the bathroom in his bedroom but then followed her into the room. The victims’ memory became hazy at that point and she “blacks out.”
The victim told police the next thing she remembers was Provens removing her shirt and the victim clutching her underwear as it was being removed. She then states Provens began to sexually assault her but stopped momentarily as the victim said, “No, no, no.”
The report states Provens continued the assault, but the victim was able to get up from under him and get dressed before leaving the room.

LSU suspended linebacker Tyler Taylor after learning he was arrested in May for reportedly serving as the getaway driver in the burglary of a Georgia pawn shop, according to arrest documents obtained Wednesday by The Advocate.
LSU athletic officials confirmed they learned of Taylor’s case Wednesday and that he is suspended indefinitely for violation of team rules.
An incident report by the Cumming Police Department said that in the early morning of Jan. 8, three men and a juvenile broke into a pawn shop in Cumming, Georgia, stole several firearms and fled the scene in a vehicle driven by Taylor.
The report said a Cumming police officer obtained arrest warrants May 27 for Taylor, 19, for conspiracy to commit a crime, party to a crime and theft by receiving stolen property.
On May 31, Taylor was booked into a local jail, and nearly five hours later he posted bond for the total sum of $33,550, according to the booking report from the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.
The three crimes for which Taylor was arrested are all classified as felonies. LSU athletes who are charged with felonies “will be immediately suspended from participation in intercollegiate athletics,” the LSU student-athlete handbook says.
Police say 20-year-old Lanard Fournette attempted to use a fake I.D to gamble at the L’Auberge Casino.
