COLUMBUS, Ohio – Authorities say a former Ohio State University running back faces three counts of rape for an alleged sexual assault of a woman this summer.
Twenty-four-year-old Bri'onte Dunn was indicted on the charges Thursday in Columbus. The Alliance man is being held in Franklin County's jail.
The Franklin County Prosecutor's Office says Dunn called a woman for a ride in August, and she took him to her home where she expected him to call a ride service. Prosecutors say she went to bed and was later raped by Dunn.
Dunn pleaded no contest in February to an assault charge related to hitting his then-girlfriend in July 2016 and received probation. Ohio State dismissed him from the team after last year's assault complaint.
Court records don't indicate whether Dunn has an attorney.
