Former Ram Claude Terrell arrested, charged with rape
Former St. Louis Rams offensive lineman Claude Terrell, who played in 20 games from 2005 to 2007 and made 13 starts, has been arrested in Texas City, Texas, and charged with rape.
According to a report by the Associated Press, Terrell held a woman for seven hours on Monday. He held her at gunpoint with a .38-caliber handgun he found in her home and the woman endured “a full day of terror” according to police.
Terrell, a fourth-round draft pick from New Mexico in 2005, left the league two years later after a domestic violence charge. He was arrested last November for assaulting the same woman that he allegedly forced sex on this week. Terrell reportedly could face up to life in prison.
