Oklahoma University college football player Frank Shannon denies that he raped a sorority girl despite her allegations, according to TMZ Sports.
Shannon is an integral part of the Sooners, having led the team in tackles last season, but his future may be in doubt because of what could be impending charges on the man.
TMZ allege that Shannon believes that the encounter with the female student was consensual, with the lady even removing her own clothes.
But that isn't the opinion of the woman involved, who tells a contrasting story to The Oklahoman.
Bleacher Reported provided details of the report, "According to the report, the woman alleges that after a party, she intended to walk home. Shannon offered her a ride, but said he first needed to drop off friends near his apartment.
"Shannon allegedly took the woman into his bedroom. According to the complaint, he came up behind her, pulled down her pants and attempted to have sex with her.
"The complainant said Shannon became frustrated when she wouldn’t cooperate.
"Shannon allegedly asked if she was menstruating, and when she said yes, he went to the bathroom. At that time, she left and met a friend in the parking lot, whom the woman had texted to come get her. The friend called the police."
This situation is yet another depressing bit of news from American football regarding these types of incidents.
Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston was recently involved in one of a similar nature, and no matter the result of both of these situations, it's clear that football players need to clean their act up.
