19-year old Reginald R. Williams II posted bond at Athens County Municipal Court earlier Wednesday after his initial appearance. Ohio University Police arrested him Tuesday and charged him with a fourth-degree felony after a 19-year old female student told police she received unwanted sexual contact from Williams without her consent. Court documents show the incident occurred over the weekend in Wilson Hall.

Statistics from the Ohio University athletics website state Williams played in seven games last season. He will be back in court on Sept. 17 at 2 p.m. for a preliminary hearing.
