Former Calhoun High School standout, and Auburn tight end Landon Rice has been accused of first-degree rape, according to a report by the Columbus (Georgia) Ledger-Enquirer.
The report states that a 19-year-old female, whose name was not reported, filed a report back on July 27 with the Auburn, Alabama Police Department. The alleged victim also filed for a protective order against Rice.
Rice has not been arrested and has yet to have any charges files against him, according to the CL-E’s report. Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn announced last week that Rice had left the team for “personal reasons.”
The report states that the incident allegedly occurred back on April 12 at an on-campus residence hall near the Auburn athletics complex.
According to the paper, the case is currently listed as “inactive,” a classification, however, that does not mean any investigation into the allegation has been closed.
Alabama classifies first-degree rape as a Class A felony with up to 10 years-to-life in jail.
