Texans RB Darius Anderson charged with felony burglary of a habitation

USA TODAY Sports

Monday brought word that Texans running back Darius Anderson faces criminal charges in Houston, but the initial police report concerning those charges was incorrect.

Anderson was initially charged with felony burglary with intent to rape, but TMZ reported on Tuesday that Houston Police Department records now show that he is only charged with felony burglary of a habitation. Per the department, a “coding error” was responsible for the mistaken charge.

The police report says that Anderson’s ex-girlfriend told police officers that Anderson broke into her home around 7 a.m. on July 15. The woman told police that Anderson pushed her down to get into the house and threatened to beat her up. She said she ran upstairs, retrieved a gun to keep Anderson from having access to it and locked herself in a bathroom to call police.

A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Wednesday.

  1. Whew I thought this was more serious but it’s only a home invasion charge. I bet the NFL gives him a fine and he plays ball week 1.

  2. He was simply fleeing violence and seeking asylum in her habitation. Case closed.

  3. Domestic squabble, likely felt he had the right to forcefully get some of what he considered his possessions. Totally wrong way to go about it, but will boil down to a temper driven spat with mandatory anger management instruction being the resolution.

  4. I’ve never heard of this RB….and I’m pretty sure in a week or two I’ll never hear of him again in the NFL.

  5. What do we expect? Young, bad backgroung, worshiped by fans, too much money. If not for a freak of nature they would be working for $15 per hour. Just luck to be bigger and faster than others.
