According to a police affidavit, around 1 a.m. m., Ralph accused the woman of cheating on him and an argument ensued. He began to push her several times before finally pushing her so hard toward some stairs that she fractured her spine.
The injury left the woman immobile, according to the affidavit, and she pleaded with Ralph to call an ambulance.
He refused and allegedly forced himself on the woman, despite her repeated pleas for her to stop.
According to WHO-DT, police said that Ralph and the victim had been dating for about three years at the time of the incident.
The university issued a statement Thursday indicating that the 20-year-old linebacker and redshirt sophomore from Chicago was no longer with the team.
