Texans' Darius Anderson charged with burglary with intent to commit assault

Texans reserve running back Darius "Jet" Anderson, a former George Ranch and TCU standout, has been charged and issued a warrant for his arrest on a burglary with intent to commit assault, according to the Houston Police department.

Anderson was originally listed with a charge of burglary with intent to commit rape, but a police official attributed that to a coding error. The Harris County District Court system still lists the original charge with no change as of Tuesday morning.

Anderson 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 she was calling police from the bathroom that Anderson left the residence. Anderson and the woman have been in a relationship, but the woman told police they have broken up.

"We are aware of the report involving Darius Anderson," the Texans said in a statement. "We are gathering information and have no further comment at this time."

Anderson was on the Texans' practice squad last season before being signed to a reserve-future deal.

Anderson went undrafted out of TCU after playing in the Senior Bowl all-star game.

Cut by the Dallas Cowboys, Anderson was on the Indianapolis Colts' practice squad and was elevated to the active roster twice. He signed a reserve-future deal with the Colts, but was cut Aug. 17.

At TCU, he rushed for 823 yards and six touchdowns as a senior, 598 yards as a junior and 768 yards and eight touchdowns as a sophomore.

He played high school football at nearby George Ranch, winning a Class 5A state championship as a senior and rushed for 2,274 yards and 30 touchdowns.

He chose TCU over scholarship offers from Alabama, Texas and Texas A&M.
