Prosecutors say that Olsen texted the victim that he was going to kill her on the night of the attack. Court documents detailing the victim’s account of February 19 show that Olsen threatened to commit suicide. The victim also said that Olsen pushed her off the bed and punched her with a closed fist on her face, on her body, and that he backhanded her with an open hand.

Olsen is the younger brother of Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen, who has yet to publicly comment on the case.

UNC-Charlotte head football coach Brad Lambert suspended Olsen after he was charged by police.
