At Penn State, RB means raping back

Suspended Penn State running back Austin Scott has been charged with raping a woman at his on-campus apartment after meeting her at a bar. Scott, 22, was arraigned Friday on charges of rape, sexual assault and two counts of aggravated indecent assault, all felonies, in connection with the Oct. 5 encounter. Scott also faces three misdemeanors: two counts of indecent assault and one count of simple assault. He was released on $50,000 unsecured bail and ordered to stay away from the alleged victim.

"The interaction he had with the woman involved was consensual, and we anticipate we will be able to prove that in court," his lawyer, Joseph Amendola, said. "Very optimistic. We're looking forward to the opportunity of establishing his innocence."

To Scott's defense, when a woman agrees to go back to your apartment after a night at the bar, it is the universal sign for let's do it. That is unless you had to drag her there after downing a few roofie-tini's.
