The Columbus Dispatch - - Metro&state - By Jim Woods

A Franklin County grand jury on Thurs­day in­dicted for­mer Ohio State Univer­sity run­ning back Bri’onte Dunn on three felony rape charges.

Colum­bus po­lice said Dunn, 24, of Al­liance, asked a fe­male ac­quain­tance for a ride home about 4:15 a.m. Aug. 20. She drove him to her home and went to bed.

About 15 min­utes later, she told po­lice, Dunn got into bed with her and be­gan pulling at her night clothes, kiss­ing her and fondling her. She told him to get away. She said he later re­turned and held her down, forc­ing her to have sex with him three times, po­lice said.

She went to OhioHealth Grant Med­i­cal Cen­ter later that day and re­ported the rape.

Dunn, a backup run­ning back who played for the Buck­eyes from 2012 to 2015, is sched­uled to ap­pear in court Oct. 16.
