Charlotte 49er quarterback Kevin Olsen, charged Sunday with rape and other crimes, threatened to strangle himself with a phone charger moments before sexually assaulting his accuser, a Mecklenburg County prosecutor said in court Monday morning. The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Olsen was freed on $103,000 bond at 4 p.m. Monday, charged with three counts of felony second-degree forcible rape, communicating threats, assault on a female and second-degree sex offense (forcible fondling). The incident occurred at 3:30 a.m. Sunday at Olsen’s apartment in University City, near the UNC Charlotte campus, according to Assistant District Attorney Kristen Northrup. Olsen and his accuser were dating, authorities said.
Derrick Lewis isn’t one to mince words and hold anything back. During his post-fight interview with Brian Stann, Lewis brought up Browne’s past domestic abuse allegations and took a step further when he brought up his opponent’s current girlfriend, former UFC women’s bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey. “I just knew I had a bigger heart than him,” Lewis said.
TMZ released a video over the weekend of two unconscious men, saying it was video of the aftermath of the altercation that led to New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis being charged with four felonies in Pittsburgh. The video seems to be a positive for Revis’ lawyers though, because they believe it helps them show their client is innocent. The voice on the video – it’s a short clip, and whoever is speaking is not shown – brags about knocking both men out and he tells someone, “Shut up before I knock your [expletive] out next.” Revis’ lawyers claim the voice isn’t of the Jets cornerback.
