Former Ohio State University football player Bri’onte Dunn was found not guilty of rape.

A Franklin County grand jury earlier this year indicted Dunn on three counts of rape, all felonies of the first degree.

According to Columbus police reports, Dunn asked the victim for a ride home on Aug. 20, 2017, around 4:15am.

She picked him up and drove to her residence against his wishes, according to police. She told police she got into bed and Dunn got in with her 15 minutes later, according to police.

The victim alleged Dunn began pulling her nightgown down, grabbing her and kissing her, though she told him to stop. She said Dunn forced her to have sex with him three times and held her down, even though she told him to stop and tried to push him off, according to police.
