NORMAN, Okla. — Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson is the subject of a sexual-assault investigation, according to documents obtained by DieHards on Tuesday morning.
Anderson is listed as the defendant in a protective-order petition filed on Monday in the District Court of Cleveland County. Under relationship to the petitioner, “alleged rapist” is written.
According to the petition, the woman said the alleged incident occurred on Nov. 16.
“I was drinking at a bar and met some guys, including Rodney Anderson, for the first time through conversation. 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. “All I remember for 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 [of the alleged incident]. I remember feeling like I couldn’t get away. He knows where I live and I’m scared for my safety. This happened in my apartment.”
Anderson has not been charged with a crime.
Police officials in Norman, Okla., confirmed they are investigating the allegation. University of Oklahoma officials said on Monday they are aware of the alleged incident and also are investigating. A hearing on the protective order is scheduled for Dec. 18 in the District Court of Cleveland County.
Until then, Anderson is prohibited from having any contact with the alleged victim and must stay away from her residence. According to online records, the woman is an employee of the University of Oklahoma.
Anderson, a sophomore, led the Sooners in rushing during the regular season with 960 yards. He scored 16 touchdowns, helping Oklahoma claim its third straight Big 12 Conference title and secure a berth in the College Football Playoff.
The Sooners face Georgia in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1. As of now, Anderson is still a member of the team.
