No charges will be filed against Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson, who was accused of rape by a former Oklahoma student, after what the district attorney described as a “thorough investigation.”
“Definitely charges are not warranted under these circumstances,” said Greg Mashburn, the Cleveland County district attorney.
In a written court statement, the woman who filed the order says she met Anderson at a bar on Nov. 16, two days before OU’s football game at Kansas.
The woman claims she went to a second bar with Anderson and planned on taking an Uber home, but, “Rodney’s friends insisted that he take me home.”
In the statement, the woman wrote, “All I remembered from the night was kissing him and vomiting for about 20 minutes. This past weekend, I was talking to a friend about the night and started recalling images and feelings of him forcing his fingers into my vagina and feeling sick, him biting me and me not feeling like I could say anything, and trying to get away from him to put clothes on.”
