The 21-year-old student told the police that she had been attacked and knew the man who raped her. She showed them an Instagram profile with Rambo's name. Further details were not released immediately.
Rambo has been a certified UGA football program assistant coach for the past two seasons.
His lawyer, Kim Stephens, said the arrest was due to an incident between Rambo and his prosecutor on Friday night at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution apartment complex
Stephens said the woman told the police that she "did not consent to sexual intercourse to a certain extent," but Rambo said she did.
"He worked with the police when they came out," said Stephens. "It was a quick turnaround. They didn't wait for scientific evidence to come back or something before they issued warrants."
Rambo was an All-American Safety in Georgia and holds a bound program record of 16 interceptions during his tenure. It was designed by the Washington Redskins in 2013 and has also played with the Miami Dolphins and the Buffalo Bills. He ended his career in 2017.
