Houston Texans practice squad running back Darius Anderson, who signed a futures deal with the team in January, was arrested on Friday.  The 24-year-old former TCU player was charged with burglary with intent to rape.

According to court documents, Anderson broke into a townhouse and chased a woman into her bathroom.  He left when she called the police.

Via Pro Football Network:

Anderson was arrested Friday, charged and is free on bond. He is set for a Wednesday morning arraignment. He has hired a defense attorney, Houston-based Kelly Benavides. Under the terms of his bail agreement, Anderson is not allowed to return to the accuser's home or possess a firearm.

Anderson, 24, allegedly broke into a Houston townhouse in the Museum District and pursued a woman into her bathroom, per court records. The women told law enforcement authorities that while calling police from the bathroom that Anderson left the residence.

This kind of news isn't good for any team.  Given what the Texans have been dealing with over the last few years, including settlements, it looks like there's something in the water down there in Houston.

The team is aware of the arrest.  It wouldn't be surprising if Anderson was looking for work soon.
