WACO, Texas (AP) - NFL prospect and former Baylor defensive end Shawn Oakman who was arrested on a sexual assault charge has been released from a Texas jail after posting $25,000 bond.

Oakman was freed Thursday from the McLennan County Jail in Waco. He was arrested Wednesday.

According to search warrants, investigators took DNA samples from Oakman’s mouth and seized his cellphone, which the 24-year-old athlete twice used to reach out to his accuser after he learned he was under investigation.

A woman told police that she met Oakman at a nightclub April 3 and he assaulted her at his apartment. According to a police affidavit, Oakman told investigating officers they had consensual sex.

Information on an attorney who can speak on Oakman’s behalf wasn’t immediately available Thursday.
