Developing: U of Tennessee Football Players Investigated in Rape Allegations--Updated


Oh boy, this may not end well.

The Knoxville, Tennessee police department and prosecutors are investigating a reported rape that may have involved players from the University of Tennessee over the weekend.

The rumors began circulating early Monday morning that there may have been players involved in the incident, which is alleged to have involved two 19-year old women at a South Knoxville apartment complex where many football players live.

One of the two women, reportedly from Florida and who was a part of the original complaint, has decided not to press charges. The other, is still pursuing them.

Tennessee coach Butch Jones did confirm in a press conference Monday afternoon that some of his players may be involved. Jones added they when all the facts were made available, he would act in a "decisive" manner.

WBIR TV in Knoxville reports that at least two players; A.J Johnson and Michael Williams are suspected in the incident. Johnson has had legal issues before, having been arrested in February for underage drinking and resisting arrest.

And it should be noted both Johnson, an All-SEC performer and the teams leading tackler and Williams have been suspended from team related activities.

Read into that what you will
