A former college player, the brother of a NFL star, has been indicted on very serious charges

These are some very serious allegations.


Kevin Olsen, the former starting quarterback for the Charlotte 49ers, has been been indicted by a grand jury on rape charges.

Specifically, Olsen was indicted on three counts of second-degree rape, two counts of assault on a female and one count of second-degree sexual offense, WSOC-TV reported.

Prosecutors in the sexual assault case against Olsen earlier told a North Carolina court  the former college quarterback threatened to kill himself and the woman he's accused of raping.

Olsen, the brother of Carolina Panthers All-Pro tight end Greg  Olsen, has been initially charged with three counts of felony second-degree forcible rape, communicating threats, assault on a female and second-degree sex offense (forcible fondling), according to a report in the Charlotte Observer. He's free on $103,000 bond, and his attorney said his client denies "99 percent" of the allegations read in court.

Prosecutors told a Mecklenburg County court judge that Olsen and a 23-year-old woman went out, and when the pair got separated, Olsen sent a text threatening to kill her. After they arrived at his apartment, he wrapped a phone charger chord around his neck and threatened to kill himself, prosecutors claim.

Prosecutors also said Olsen hit the woman with a pillow, punched her in the face, and assaulted her three times. The woman fled the apartment when Olsen fell asleep.


This was Olsen's mug shot:


This is the third time Olsen has been kicked off a football team for disciplinary reasons. The same happened at the  University of Miami and Towson State.
