Detailed statement from Rodney Anderson’s attorney. “While we can only speculate as to (redacted)’s motives in seeking a civil protective order, her claims surfaced only after Mr. Anderson did not reciprocate a desire to pursue a relationship with (redacted).” https://t.co/LUnQN2wBD22017-12-5 16:15:26
No charges have been filed against Anderson at this time.
Per Trotter, the woman said in a protective order filing that she started "recalling images and feelings of [Anderson] forcing his fingers" inside her and biting her after discussing the night of Nov. 16 with a friend over the weekend.
The woman also said that when she tried to get away and put her clothes on, Anderson followed her and asked what she was doing.
She added that the alleged encounter happened after she had been drinking at a bar and Anderson's friends "were insistent that he take" her home, according to Trotter.
An Oklahoma spokesperson told Trotter that the school was aware of the allegation against Anderson and was gathering information.
