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.
