University of North Carolina Charlotte junior quarterback Kevin Olsen was arrested Sunday in Charlotte on a rape charge.

Olsen was charged with felony second-degree forcible rape, cyberstalking, assault on a female and second-degree forced sex.

According to a statement from the university, "This incident occurred a week after a separate, unrelated case of alleged on-campus sexual assault involving acquaintances. Olsen has been suspended from Charlotte athletics, and the University is reviewing the case consistent with its disciplinary procedures."

Olsen's college career already had a rocky path.

A New Jersey high school star and brother of current Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen, Kevin Olsen enrolled at the University of Miami in 2013, took a redshirt year, and then left the Hurricanes in 2014 due to reported team violations.

He was thrown off the Towson University football team in March 2015, and he played for Riverside (Calif.) City College in the fall of 2015.

Last season, he appeared in six games for Charlotte, completing 87 of 175 passes for 842 yards. He threw six touchdown passes and three interceptions, making one start in midseason.
