LSU running back Tae Provens has been accused of raping a “blacked out” victim at an LSU apartment Sunday (March 24). He was booked on a third-degree rape charge Wednesday.
According to the arrest report from university police, the victim said she and a friend went to Provens’ apartment at Riverbend Hall at 3 a.m. Sunday morning when she asked to use his bathroom. Provens directed her toward the bathroom in his bedroom and followed her into the room.
She said that at this time her memory becomes hazy and she “blacks out,” but she remembers Provens following her into the bathroom, her shirt coming off and her attempting to hold onto her underwear as it was taken off, the report said.
The victim then said Provens went behind her and sexually assaulted her. She said she tried to tell him, “no, no, no,” but he paused and continued, according to the report.
