Hayne, who played briefly for the 49ers, charged with aggravated sexual assault.
A former San Francisco 49ers running back, Jarryd Hayne, has reportedly been charged with aggravated sexual assault, according to BBC Sport. Hayne, 30, is accused of sexually assaulting a woman in Hunter Valley, north of Sydney, Australia on September 30.
The report states that New South Wales Police launched an investigation after receiving reports a woman had been sexually assaulted by a man she met on social media. The investigation ultimately led police to Hayne, who has since been released on bail pending a court appearance on December 10.
Hayne has made a career for himself playing professional rugby in Australia for the Parramatta Eels, but he briefly left the team in 2015 to pursue a career in the NFL. He signed with the San Francisco 49ers in 2015 but didn't get much playing time on the field, as he accumulated just 79 offensive yards on 23 touches with three fumbles in eight games for the Niners.
He is currently a free agent having left the Parramatta Eels at the end of the season.
