Indianapolis Colts linebacker Josh McNary has been charged with rape. According to Fox 59, McNary was formally charged on Wednesday. The incident occurred on Dec. 1 and McNary is facing one count of rape, one count of criminal confinement, and one count of battery resulting in bodily injury.
Per Fox 59, the alleged victim met McNary at a bar and went to his apartment after, which is where the incident happened. Apparently, the victim claims a fight broke out after which McNary raped her. After she contacted the police, upon arrival at the apartment, McNary reportedly told them, “I know why you are here.”
McNary’s attorney Ed Schrager said in a statement to The Associated Press that, “The charges and affidavit publicly disseminated on Wednesday afternoon are not evidence of wrong doing but simply one side’s story.”
It is too early to speculate on this investigation since we do not know which party is telling the truth, but I’m sure we will know the truth very shortly. The Colts are not sure yet whether McNary will be able to play in Sunday’s AFC Championship game against the New England Patriots.
