The unfortunate series of events surrounding embattled former University of Louisville point guard Chris Jones has taken another unexpected and tragic turn. According to a report from the Courier Journal, Louisville Metro police have issued a pair of warrants for Jones’ arrest on charges of rape and sodomy. The first warrant says a woman was hospitalized Sunday and later identified Jones as the one who committed the rape. The second warrant states that Jones – along with two other unidentified males – forced himself onto a separate victim and demanded oral sex.

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of former University of Louisville basketball player Chris Jones on charges of raping one woman and sodomizing another.

The warrant, obtained by University of Louisville police, was signed Wednesday by Jefferson District Judge Katie King.

The warrant says that one of the women was hospitalized Sunday and able to identify Jones as her assailant. One of the women is 19 and the other 20, according to the warrant.

A second warrant says Jones, along with two other people, forced a woman to have intercourse and oral sex. She also identified Jones as a U of L player, according to the warrant. She was taken to University of Louisville Hospital, where she was treated.

Jones, who was dismissed from the team Sunday, is expected to surrender in court on Thursday morning. The case is expected to be called at 10 a.m.

It should also be noted that both of these new allegations are separate from the one that occurred last week when Jones reportedly sent a threatening text message to a woman after she ransacked his apartment.

I don’t even know where to start. While, yes, Jones should be allotted the proper due process and his day in court in which hopefully all the facts come out (for better or worse), the damage he’s done to this team and University is nothing short of a complete and utter embarrassment. His selfish actions have dragged the school into the national spotlight for all the wrong reasons and he’s created a distraction that his teammates will find difficult to deal with. Furthermore, the damage done to the women (if these claims are indeed true), both mentally and physically, is reprehensible and should not be tolerated.

Jones is supposed to turn himself in to police this morning and we’ll post more info as it comes out.
