The University released the following statement:
The University administration has been in close communication with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department regarding its arrest of student-athlete Kevin Olsen Sunday afternoon.The allegations in this incident took place off campus. This incident occurred a week after a separate, unrelated case of alleged on-campus sexual assault involving acquaintances. Olsen has been suspended from Charlotte Athletics, and the University is reviewing the case consistent with its disciplinary procedures. Due to the ongoing CMPD investigation and federal protections on student information, the University will have no further comment on the investigation at this time.
This isn’t Olsen’s first time getting in trouble. The redshirt junior was a four-star rated quarterback coming out of high school and originally signed with the University of Miami, but legal issues forced him out in less than a year. He was also dismissed from Towson University’s squad for breaking team rules.
