INDIANAPOLIS – Butler’s Carlos “Scooby” Johnson, a former Mr. Basketball in Michigan, has been accused of rape.

A probable cause affidavit of seven pages was filed Thursday in Marion County in connection with a Feb. 4 incident on campus. 

Johnson, 19, did not play in his freshman year at Butler after knee surgery.

He was on the bench during games for much of the season but later was absent without explanation. His name was listed on the team’s roster all summer but has since been removed.

A statement by the university said Johnson was charged with rape, attempted rape and sexual battery. The statement also said he is no longer enrolled and has not been allowed on campus since the incident.

“The University takes these allegations very seriously and has a zero-tolerance policy for sexual misconduct, violence, and harassment, per our Sexual Misconduct Policy,” the statement said. “Our top priority is the safety of our students and campus community, and the University provides support and resources to all students.
