The alleged victim, described as a known acquaintance of Jackson's, told police the football star forced himself on her, even though she denied him consent and tried to physically resist him.

Jackson was charged with sexual battery and false imprisonment.

Jackson turned himself in at Orient Road Jail Wednesday and was charged with sexual battery and false imprisonment - the same charges he faces in the earlier case. Those were the same charges filed against him during a May 1 arrest.

Circuit Judge Margaret Taylor told the defensive end during a hearing on Wednesday that she is a USF graduate who is "embarrassed and ashamed" to be an alum in the wake of the two arrests.

Jackson was released from county jail on a $9,500 bond less than an hour after he was booked Wednesday afternoon, according to the Times. Taylor later recused herself from the case. After she refused, he blocked the door.

Celtics rout Wizards on home court to take series lead
Boston led by as many as 26 points, negating Washington's physicality by spreading the floor and knocking down 16 3-pointers. They can't stay healthy but they have won two series in a row and that's better than losing two series in a row, I guess.

According to the latest allegations, the victim was in her bathroom when Jackson asked her multiple times to shower with him. She told detectives she washed her hair in her bathtub while remaining clothed, the Sheriff's Office said.

The report said Jackson allegedly drove the woman to a pharmacy to pick up an emergency contraceptive, then made her take it while he watched.

Taylor had harsh words Jackson and Strong, the former Louisville and Texas coach who has been at USF since December. He was then promptly dismissed from the South Florida football program as well.

- The University of South Florida football player accused of sexually assaulting a student at USF is also accused of raping another woman. After that incident, head coach Charlie Strong suspended Jackson from team activities while the legal process played out.
