An Indianapolis Colts linebacker has been charged with rape, according to court documents filed Wednesday by the Marion County prosecutor.

Offensive Linebacker Josh McNary, 26, who has been with the team since 2013, faces one count of rape, one count of criminal confinement and one count of battery, court documents state.


McNary was taken into police custody Wednesday night after the charges were filed.

A 29-year-old woman told police that a man she met at a Downtown bar after a long night of drinking took her to his apartment and raped her. According to a probable cause affidavit, the two ended up in a bedroom, where the man tried to kiss her face and neck. The woman said he got upset and became aggressive after she turned down his advances.

“He scared me, intimidated me and scared me,” the woman told detectives.

Documents said the woman scratched the man’s neck, face, back and shoulder during a fight that occurred before the alleged rape. The woman said she told the man multiple times to stop. The woman later sneaked out of the apartment while the man was in the bathroom. She told police she ended up taking the man’s cellphone because she couldn’t find hers.

The incident allegedly happened in the early morning hours of Dec. 1.

The woman said she left work about 11:30 p.m. the previous night and went to three Downtown bars with co-workers. They began at The Pub, where the woman drank a cocktail and took a shot, she told detectives. The group then went to the Blu Night Club, where the woman took one shot before leaving for Tiki Bob’s on South Meridian Street, she told police.
