LaDarrius Jackson was taken into custody on sexual battery and false imprisonment charges on Wednesday, which are the same allegations he’s facing from a May 1st arrest in an unrelated incident.

The University of South Florida football star turned himself into authorities after an assault that transpired on March 27th, when a woman said Jackson forced himself on her after he refused to let her leave the room. After the arrest, he was kicked off of the team.

The Tampa Bay Times reported that the woman told investigators that Jackson, a 6-foot-4, 248-pound defensive end, was trying to force her to shower with him while the two were at her Hillsborough County, Florida, residence, Fox13 reported.

The victim said she declined his requests, but Jackson barricaded her from leaving the bathroom.

To appease him, she said she washed her hair in the sink without taking off her clothes before Jackson grabbed her, ripped off her clothes and sexual assaulted her as she tried to fight back.

The report indicated that LaDarrius Jackson purportedly took the woman to a pharmacy to get an emergency contraceptive, then watched her take it.

This is the second collection of charges brought against the 22-year-old. Before Jackson was dismissed from the team, he had been removed from all team activities after he was arrested last week, after another accuser said that on May 1st, he “pushed her on the bed, straddled her, rocked back and forth until he ejaculated on her chest.”

In that instance, too, he reportedly would not allow the woman, a USF student who was in her on-campus dorm, to leave the room before he forced himself on her.
