The Rams’ decision to cut defensive tackle Tyrunn Walker today came just moments before news broke that he is under investigation in a sexual assault case in Louisiana, where he grew up and previously played for the Saints.

The New Orleans Advocate reports that two women told police they were drinking with Walker and another man at a Mardi Gras celebration on February 28 when they began to feel disoriented, and that all four people ended up in a hotel room where the two women can remember little more than waking up and finding Walker and the other man sexually assaulting one of the women.

The local prosecutor confirmed that his office has received the police investigation and is reviewing whether to present the case to a grand jury.

The two women, an 18-year-old and a 19-year-old who are both college students, have filed for a restraining order against Walker and the other man, Justin Williams. Both women spoke to the New Orleans Advocate and indicated they think they were drugged.

Although he is no longer under contract to an NFL team, Walker could be subject to NFL discipline even if he is not charged in connection with this case.

  1. reggie bush and darren sharper disciples no doubt.

    would hate to see what would happen to them if they also smashed their cell phones.

    go bears.

  2. A few things how are a 18 and 19 year old drinking
    And any man that needs to drug a women to get some action at is not a man at all

    Mardi Gras if you want action just say hello to enough women and you will find a partner

  3. Not much of a man if he has to resort to drugging women to have sex.

    I find it disturbing that some people disliked that comment.

    Reggie Bush??? What?

  5. Wow, it looks as if most commentors have decided the guy’s guilty, but if you read ALL of the linked article it’s a lot less clear-cut. One of the girls performed oral BEFORE going to the room, both had been drinking, and they took some time before complaining. One of the guys even had the girl’s contact details and got in touch after. One complaint was dropped after the girl complainant didn’t show up. Yes, this MIGHT be a case of rape/assault, or instead might be one of foolish girls getting drunk and letting themselves be taken advantage of by drunk predatory guys, and then regretting it once sober and retrospectively blaming others for their actions.
