USF's LaDarrius Jackson arrested on sexual assault charge for second time this month
Wednesday May 10th, 2017

Former University of South Florida football player LaDarrius Jackson was arrested for the second time within the month after a second woman accused him of sexually assaulting her, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

He has been dismissed from the football team following his latest arrest, the Times reports. 

Earlier this month, Jackson was arrested on charges of sexual battery and false imprisonment hours after he allegedly assaulted a female student in her dorm room. He had been suspended from the team after the first arrest.

According to the latest allegations, the victim was in her bathroom when Jackson asked her multiple times to shower with him. She turned him down multiple times before trying to exit the bathroom. He allegedly blocked the door. She washed her hair in her bathtub before he grabbed her and forcibly removed her clothes, according to the Tampa Bay Times

The USF player allegedly committed sexual battery and then drove her to a local pharmacy to make her take an emergency contraceptive.

Jackson was released from county jail on a $9,500 bond less than an hour after he was booked Wednesday afternoon, according to the Times.

The 6-foot-4, 243-pound junior defensive end played in seven games last season with three tackles. He joined USF after transferring from Hinds Community College in Jackson, Miss.
