Protection order filed against Oklahoma's leading rusher

Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson has been accused of raping a woman as part of a protective order she filed against the Sooners' leading rusher this week.

As Jake Trotter of ESPN.com notes, the woman said in the filing that she was drinking at a bar on November 16 when she met Anderson, whom she had never met before.

The woman alleges that she had just met Anderson on the night in question, and was going to hire an Uber to pick her up, but Anderson's friends were "insistent" that she go with him. "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".

No charges have been filed against Anderson at this point, and a Norman police investigation is ongoing. "He knows where I live and I'm scared for my safety this happened in my apartment". Mr. Anderson did not, nor would he ever, force himself on any woman.

Until then, Anderson is prohibited from having any contact with the alleged victim and to stay away from her residence.

The Washington Post does not normally name the victims of sexual assault. As she attempted to leave, the woman claims Anderson followed her.

He was ordered to pay the court costs in the protective order filing.

An online case record says Cleveland County District Court Judge Jequita Napoli will hold a hearing on December 18.

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

Anderson, who leads the Sooners with 960 yards and 11 touchdowns, has not been charged with a crime. He also caught 16 passes for 283 yards and five touchdowns and was extremely potent during the final six weeks of the regular season, gaining 1,041 yards from scrimmage and scoring 14 touchdowns. The woman claims they went to a second bar with Anderson.

Anderson's attorney says the woman's allegations are "patently false". Mixon is now with the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals.
