Oklahoma RB Rodney Anderson named in woman's protective order request

Oklahoma RB Rodney Anderson named in woman's protective order request

An emergency protective order has been issued against Oklahoma star running back Rodney Anderson.

The protective order named Rodney Anderson as the woman's alleged rapist, according to the court document.

Norman Police confirmed it is investigating the allegation.

Monday, a woman filed for an order of protection against Oklahoma's Rodney Anderson. Mr. Anderson is shocked and disturbed by Ms.Thornton's claims.

The woman initially planned to take a ride service home from a second bar the two attended but wrote in her statement that Anderson's friends "were insistent that he take me home".

She reportedly told officials that all she remembered of that night was kissing Anderson and vomiting.




She specifically alleged that he bit her and sexually assaulted her with his fingers. "He knows where I live and I'm scared for my safety".

According to Oklaw.org, the state of Oklahoma defines a protective order as "a civil court order that is created to stop violent and harassing behavior and to protect you and your family from the abuser".

In the protective order filing, the woman says she was drinking at a bar on November 16 when she met Anderson for the first time.

Anderson, a redshirt sophomore, broke out this season with 960 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns, plus 283 receiving yards and five receiving touchdowns. "We are confident that when authorities have all of the information surrounding this circumstance, Mr. Anderson will be completely exonerated of any wrongdoing, and he looks forward to the conclusion of this investigation so he can focus on his obligations as a student-athlete".

Anderson has been an integral part to the Sooners' 12-1 season and College Football Playoff semi-final appearance.
