Baylor offensive lineman Rami Hammad was arrested on Monday after he allegedly stalked his ex-girlfriend on the university’s campus. According to Outside the Lines, Hammad was accused of sexually assaulting a different woman last fall, and was later accused of violating a no-contact order that was meant to protect that woman.
Last fall, a different woman reported to Baylor’s Title IX office that she had been sexually assaulted by Hammad. After Hammad confronted the woman about why he was under investigation by the Title IX office, she requested a no-contact order from the university, according to documents reviewed by Outside the Lines. She received it, but three days later, Hammad allegedly confronted her again. She and two witnesses reported that confrontation to police, but she declined to press charges, believing the Title IX office would pursue the matter, she told Outside the Lines.
Hammad played all 13 games for the Bears last year, and was expected to be the team’s starting right guard this season. The university says Hammad has been suspended from all team activities until his stalking case is resolved.
