According to FOX 5 Atlanta, Georgia Bulldogs linebacker Adam Anderson has surrendered to the authorities on a rape charge. As we previously reported, a 21-year-old woman has accused Anderson of raping her. 

Immediately after the accusation, Anderson was suspended by the team. The incident stems from an alleged incident that happened at a party on the morning of Friday, October 29th, just hours before the team’s game with the Florida Gators in Jacksonville, Florida.

The woman told the authorities that she had some drinks before waking up to Anderson having non-consensual sex with her. Following the alleged attack, she went to the police to report it. 

Anderson was not immediately arrested. However, he surrendered to face the charges before 8 pm on Wednesday. 

“Adam is innocent of the charge brought against him and intends to vigorously defend himself in court,” attorney Steve Sadow said in a statement. “He will seek release on bond. Once again, Adam hopes and prays that the UGA community and the public keep an open mind and afford him the presumption of innocence that the law demands.”

After the alleged incident, he went on to play against the Gators. 

“We don’t comment on law enforcement matters, but I’ve been clear about the high standards we have for our student-athletes on and off the field,” Coach Kirby Smart said.
