BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) — One of the Bowling Green State University football team’s leading scorers has been charged with attempted rape in northwestern Ohio.
Court records show 19-year-old William Houston, of Dublin, was arraigned Monday in Bowling Green Municipal Court and later released on bail. The records show no attorney for the sophomore running back.
There was no phone listing for Houston.
Bowling Green police report Houston was arrested Sunday after a female told police she was asleep at a home where other people were staying and she awoke to find a man atop her trying to engage in sexual activity. Police say others reported that the man was Houston.
University spokesman Dave Kielmeyer says the school also is conducting its own investigation.
Houston scored 11 touchdowns last season and rushed for 211 yards.
