A burglary charge against 24 year-old Texans running back, Darius Anderson was dropped Friday, according to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office.

Police had accused Anderson of breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s home on July 15th. The woman told police that Anderson showed up in front of her home around 7am and allegedly followed her car, trying to cut her off. She claims she drove until she lost site of him but when she returned to her house, she claims Anderson appeared as she was closing her garage and forced his way inside her house.

Court documents allege the woman was chased by Anderson inside her home. Police say she eventually grabbed her gun and locked herself inside a bathroom. She claims Anderson then allegedly broke her locked bedroom door and refused to leave, threatening to “beat her up.”

When she called the police, she claims he fled.

At the time of Anderson’s arrest, the Texans issued this statement: We are aware of the report involving Darius Anderson. We are gathering information and have no further comment at this time.”

Anderson signed a futures deal in January with the Texans. In 2020, he was signed to the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent, but was waived. He has not played in an NFL game yet, according to reports.
