According to the affidavit obtained by ElevenWarriors, Riep filmed the victim and told her to give her name and say the incident was consensual before driving her back to her residence last week.

Per ESPN:

School officials have been made aware of the arrest and have removed both players from the team.

OSU Head Coach Ryan Day released the following statement Wednesday night:

“I have dismissed Amir Riep and Jahsen Wint from our football program. I am not making any statement on the criminal charges, but it is clear they did not live up to our standards and my expectations. The athletics department will make sure they both continue to have access to the health and well-being resources available to students and student-athletes. Due to the ongoing criminal investigation, I will not be commenting further.”
