Report: Baylor allowed Hammad to play despite incidents

WACO, Texas (AP) – ESPN reports that a Baylor football player arrested this week on a felony stalking charge was allowed to play in 2015 despite being accused of sexual assault and violating a “no contact” order with the alleged victim.

Rami Hammad was suspended from the Baylor football team on Monday after he was charged with stalking, harassing and assaulting a former girlfriend.

ESPN’s “Outside the Lines” reported Thursday that a different woman told Baylor officials in September 2015 that after going with Hammad to his apartment, he forced her to perform a sexual act. ESPN did not identify the woman, who said Hammad violated the university issued no-contact order two days after it was issued.

Hammad’s attorney and Baylor officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
