BATON ROUGE, La. - Charles Scott Jr., a former LSU running back who was the Eagles' sixth-round draft choice in 2010, was arrested yesterday and charged with rape after an incident at his home near Baton Rouge.
Scott, 23, was booked yesterday afternoon at the Ascension Parish Jail, the sheriff's office said. Bond had not been set and it was not immediately known if he has an attorney.
Sheriff's spokesman Tony Bacala told The Advocate newspaper that deputies responded to Scott's home in the Baton Rouge suburb of Prairieville about 4 a.m. after someone reported a disturbance there.
He said the disturbance was the result of "an 18-year-old alleging she was raped by Charles Edward Scott Jr." No further details were available.
