On Wednesday, the Ohio Attorney General and Guernsey County Sheriff revealed that Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman Josh Sills has been indicted with charges of felony rape and kidnapping.
According to the news release from the Attorney General’s office, it is alleged that Sills engaged in sexual activity without consent and unlawfully detained a victim.
The indictment states that there is probable cause that Sills had sexual contact with a woman on Dec. 5, 2019.
According to a police report, the victim said that after her cousin left the vehicle, Sills pulled her back in and grabbed her by the ponytail.
A medical examination revealed bruising on her throat, lip, ear, and knees. The victim claims to have known Sills for about seven or eight years before the incident.
In response, the Eagles organization announced that Sills has since been placed on the Commissioner Exempt List and is prohibited from participating in games or practices.
The team also stated that they were in the process of gathering more information on the matter.
The Eagles are scheduled to play in the Super Bowl LVII against the Kansas City Chiefs on Feb. 12.
Josh Sills was drafted as an undrafted free agent in April and has played in one game this season.
