Former Georgia All-American football player Bacarri Jamon Rambo was arrested on a rape charge Monday night, according to the Athens-Clarke County Police Department.
Rambo, 29, played for the University of Georgia Bulldogs from 2009 through 2012.
“On June 13, 2020, the ACCPD began an investigation into the rape of a 21-year-old female UGA student, which occurred at a downtown residence,” police stated in a Tuesday morning media release. Rambo was booked into the Clarke County Jail on the warrant at about 10 p.m. Monday.
Bail had not been set as of late Tuesday morning.
According to a police incident report, the alleged rape was reported at 1:17 a.m. Saturday.
The report listed the "location of occurrence" as Georgia Height Apartments at 150 W. Broad St., the same address under which Rambo was booked into jail.
The victim reportedly identified Rambo as her attacker from the former football player's Instagram profile.
Rambo shares Georgia’s all-time interceptions record of 16.
He was named a first-team All-American following his junior season in 2011.
The former safety was a sixth-round NFL draft pick of the Washington Redskins in 2013, spending two seasons with that franchise before moving on to Buffalo.
Rambo spent the 2014 and 2015 seasons with the Bills before going to Miami in 2016. He was cut by Buffalo in the 2017 preseason, ending his NFL career.
Rambo returned to UGA in 2018 when head coach Kirby Smart brought him onto his staff as an intern.
