Justin Crawford, a former West Virginia football star who played for the Atlanta Falcons during the NFL preseason before getting released, is facing some very serious legal issues. Over the weekend, Crawford was arrested on a series of felony charges which include incest and sodomy. TMZ Sports was first to report the news.

The complete list of charges for the 23-year-old running back are incest, child molestation sodomy and enticing a child for indecent purpose.

Crawford was taken into custody on Saturday and is currently being held behind bars without bond.

TMZ Sports has troubling details on the incidents leading to Crawford’s arrest.

The report states:

Officials say Crawford’s wife caught the football star in a sexual situation with the victim around 5 AM on Saturday morning. When pressed by investigators, officials say Crawford eventually admitted having sexual intercourse and oral sex with the girl — and said it was her idea. The girl told investigators she was asleep in the living room when Crawford began to sexually assault her.

The victim is allegedly a 12-year-old girl.

In 2015, Crawford was the 2015 national junior college player of the year. The running back went on to record back-to-back 1,000 yard seasons while at West Virginia, but ultimately went undrafted in the NFL Draft. He caught on with the Atlanta Falcons during the preseason, but was released in September. Crawford was set to play for the Atlanta Legends of the Alliance of American Football, but that is obviously now in very serious jeopardy.
