An arrest warrant was issued against Jones on Wednesday.
A judge released Jones to home incarceration and set his cash bond at $25,000 after Jones appeared in court on Thursday. Two others, Tyvon Walker and Jalen Tilford, were arrested and charged in the incident, according to the Jefferson County Attorney’s Office.
Walker was charged with one count of rape and held on $75,000 bond and Tilford is charged with one count of rape, one count of sodomy and has a $100,000 bail.
According to the Courier-Journal‘s report, one of the women identified Jones after she was hospitalized by the assault, which occurred on Saturday night. The warrant says one of the women is 19 and the other is 20.
Jones was dismissed from Louisville’s basketball program on Sunday and had been previously suspended by the team for violating its rules. No reason was given for Jones’ dismissal.
“He’s finished,” Louisville coach Rick Pitino said on Sunday. “There won’t be any comment.”
In a separate incident, Jones reportedly threatened a female student in a text message, according to a Louisville police report, saying he would “smack” her after she “messed up” his room. The woman did not want Jones to be prosecuted.
Jones, a senior, was the team’s third-leading scorer (13.6 points per game) and leader in assists (94) this season.
