The Orleans Parish District Attorney dropped simple rape charges against freshman football player Niguel “Teddy” Veal on Aug. 5.

Veal was accused of raping one 18-year-old female in a university residence hall on April 14, as reported in an April 24 article in The Hullabaloo. ​His bond was set at $20,000 after his April 22 arrest by the New Orleans Police Department.

The wide receiver was temporarily suspended following his arrest. He has since been reinstated to the Green Wave football team.
