Chris Jones, Former Louisville Guard, Charged with Rape, Sodomy

None

Chris Jones, the troubled guard who was kicked off the Louisville team this week, has been charged with raping one woman and sodomizing another, and there’s a warrant for his arrest this morning. Via the Courier-Journal:

The warrant says that one of the women was hospitalized Sunday and able to identify Jones as her assailant. One of the women is 19 and the other 20, according to the warrant.

Last Saturday, Jones was reinstated onto the team, and played in a victory over the Miami Hurricanes. The alleged assaults happened Saturday night. The following day, Jones was “finished” with the program according to coach Rick Pitino.

Jones was the team’s 3rd leading scorer this season, averaging 13.7 points per game and leading the team in assists per game (3.6). Louisville has split three of its last six games, but has struggled mightily offensively with and without Jones. They finish the season at Florida State, against Notre Dame, and against Virginia.
