Oklahoma running back Rodney Anderson is currently going through a sexual assault investigation. But according to sources obtained by The Oklahoman, it is unlikely he will be charged at this time.
The Oklahoman’s Brooke Pryor reports:
“Anderson, 21, has not been arrested and a criminal charge is considered unlikely under the circumstances. Among the evidence in Anderson’s favor are text messages sent to him by the woman since Nov. 16, sources told The Oklahoman.”
The woman accusing Anderson of rape filed a protective order saying the incident happened on Nov., 16. Shortly after the news broke, Anderson created a Twitter account to defend himself.
In my wildest dreams, I never thought I'd have to set up a Twitter account to defend myself. In the most possible straightforward and honest manner, I did not do this.@espn

Anderson and his lawyer released a statement calling the allegations against him as ‘patently false’ and the victim allegedly pursued a relationship with the running back.
The university says it knows about the allegations and is awaiting more information. There is a hearing on the protective order Dec., 18.
