Missouri RB Derrick Washington Accused of Sexual Assault

Missouri has suspended senior running back Derrick Washington indefinitely, as police are investigating him for an alleged sexual assault in June. The victim, reportedly Washington’s tutor, received an order of protection from him shortly after the incident. He may be facing charges of second-degree trespassing and “deviate sexual assault,” a felony.

“I was sexually assaulted by him, and I am pressing criminal charges,” the alleged victim wrote in the order. “I fear physical retaliation.”

On June 19 at 2:30 a.m., Washington entered the victim’s room at Campus View Apartments “unwilling and unprovoked,” the order states. The victim awoke to him “digitally penetrating her.”

Washington sent a tweet at 12:13 AM the night of the alleged incident. The next tweet came after 2:00 PM the next afternoon. He saw Toy Story later that day.

He was Missouri’s leading rusher last season, fourth-team all Big 12.  Coaches confirmed he was “indefinitely suspended for disciplinary reasons.”
