Miami DT Jeffrey Brown accused of sexual battery

Al Golden's most challenging day of his young tenure at Miami has just gotten immensely worse. Earlier today there was a report that the Hurricanes would be suspending four players stemming from two separate instances, but that pales in comparison to the accusations facing Miami defensive tackle Jeffrey Brown.

According to the Associated Press, Brown, 19, was arrested Wednesday on sexual battery charges for allegedly raping a fellow student on campus:

Miami defensive tackle Jeffrey Brown was arrested Wednesday and accused of forcing sex on an intoxicated female in her dorm room.
Police say the alleged incident took place in the early morning hours of April 30. Brown surrendered to police Wednesday afternoon and was charged with one count of sexual battery about an hour later.

According to the report, a female friend of Brown's showed up at his dorm room on April 30 after a night of drinking. After she threw up in his bathroom, Brown walked her back to her room. That's when the trouble allegedly began. 

Police say Brown took her back to her room after she became ill and passed out in his bathroom, then helped her into her bed, doing so "under pretense that he was concerned for her well being," according to the affadavit.
Police said the alleged victim fell asleep, only to be awakened by Brown allegedly removing her "comforter and underwear." Police said Brown then had sex with the woman, despite her pleas for him to stop.
Police said Brown initially denied having sex with the alleged victim, then acknowledged doing so under further questioning.

Making matters worse, while being interviewed by the police on Wednesday, Brown reportedly sent several text messages to his roommate asking him to dispose of his underwear. The police recovered Brown's underwear and took them into evidence.

The University of Miami has suspended Brown indefinitely following his arrest, announcing in a statement that it "has become aware of the serious charges made against a student athlete," but not naming Brown specifically.

If the details of the allegations listed in the arrest report are even close to true -- often but certainly not always the case -- Jeffrey Brown will have much larger problems to face than trying to regain his football eligibility.

This makes seven players currently believed to be suspended for Miami's season-opener against Maryland.

UPDATE: In Brown's defense, Chicago-based law firm Durkin and Roberts released a statement asserting that Brown "did not engage in any criminal conduct whatsoever on the evening in question," and that he broke no team or university rules. Brown is a native of Evanston, Illinois.

Miami DT Jeffrey Brown accused of sexual battery

I dont think Guru could be more correct.. I have a daughter and if she gets drunk and provoks grown drunk ass men and has sex with them, what could i do. 1st she's wrong for getting throwed 2nd if she didnt wanna do the nasty she shouldnt have went to the room with him . I guarantee it was provoked and, a large drunk man brewsky and a female is amunition for what he did. If American don't like it why don't we make liquor illegal? So then we can legalize weed and get high and be able to focus on what's right and wrong a little better!!!

It certainly appears that the "U" has reverted back to their old ways, taking any player who has football ability, no matter what kind of character issues they may have.  This makes the number of Miami players suspended for their first game to 7.  I thought that former Miami Head Coach Randy Shannon was suppose to have cleaned up the team.  I guess that was nothing more than a series of false statements than anything else.  Miami has been famous for running a dirty program, and this is just more evidence of that.

Hurricane Guru - You are one of the most intellectually challanged people on the Internet.  There is NEVER a time when it is OK to take advantage of someone when they are not in pocession of their faculties.  It is NOT natural to take advantage of a drunk woman, it is barbaric.  According to the article they were friends, I guess not.  Also, if he didn't think he did anything wrong why would he ask his friends to dispose of his underwear?  There is always more to a story than the original telling, but this is pretty damning of him, and your comments are pretty damning of you.
