Via The Charlotte Observer: Charlotte 49ers quarterback Kevin Olsen was arrested on rape charges Sunday afternoon in Charlotte.

Olsen is charged with three counts of felony second-degree forcible rape, communicating threats, assault on a female and second-degree sex offense (forcible fondling).
Charlotte football coach Brad Lambert said Sunday night he was aware of the arrest and that Olsen, a junior, had been suspended from the team.

A statement released by UNC Charlotte said that the allegations against Olsen β€œappear to involve sexual assault within an existing relationship.”

UNC Charlotte said it had been in communication with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police following the arrest Sunday afternoon. Allegations in the case stemmed from an incident that occurred off campus, the university said, but provided no details.
