LSU just can’t catch a break. A student on the football team has been arrested for an alleged sexual assault incident on campus.

The incident happened early Sunday morning at Riverbend Hall. Police documents show that two women  went to Alphonso ‘Tae’ Provens apartment after a night of partying and drinking in Tigerland.

The victim stated Provens offered the bathroom in his room for her to use and followed her in there. Once she was in his room, she said she blacked out.

She woke up as her shirt and underwear were being taken off and as Provens allegedly assaulted her.

The victim told police she was able to escape from under him and got dressed before leaving the apartment with her friend. According to the second witness, Provens, admitted to having sex with the victim but said he stopped because she was upset. That victim says she does not know what actually happened because she was in another room

Provens was arrested Wednesday and booked on one count of third-degree rape. He has since been released.
