Houston Texans running back Darius Anderson could be facing some serious jail time, after being charged with felony burglary of a habitation after an altercation with his ex-girlfriend, according to TMZ.

It was initially mentioned that Anderson had intent to rape, but those accusations have since been dropped.

The new charge stems from Anderson’s probable cause affidavit, where cops say the running back’s ex-girlfriend told them he had broken into her Harris County, Texas home around 7 AM on July 15th.

Cops say that the woman did her best to keep Anderson from getting inside the house, but he forced himself in through the garage, resulting in his ex falling down the stairs and hurting her shoulder and chest.

She then went upstairs and grabbed her gun, so the Texan couldn’t find it and retrieve it.

She then ran into the upstairs bathroom and locked herself in, where Anderson allegedly yelled “that he was ‘going to beat her up.'”

Cops then note that Anderson ran off after he heard her on the phone with the police.

The woman, who has dated the running back on and off for the past year but broke up two months ago, says that he has allegedly hit her in the past.

Anderson has a court hearing on Wednesday.

Darius Anderson, 24, was a star running back at TCU, and a current member of the Texans’ practice squad.

He was initially signed as an undrafted free agent for the Dallas Cowboys in the 2020 NFL Draft.
