Middle Tennessee State University business senior Clinton Knox III was arrested Monday on one count of rape, one of aggravated rape, one of aggravated robbery and two counts of impersonating an officer.
The Murfreesboro Police Department arrested Knox on multiple warrants, from an incident taking place in late April, after an anonymous call that disclosed his location.
Knox, a MTSU Student Government Association senator, was named Grand Board Director by the MTSU chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi in August, according to the Daily News Journal.

MTSU spokesman Andrew Oppmann said the university was unaware of the accusations until he was contacted by the media.
“We take these matters very seriously and we are currently seeking more information,” Oppmann said.
Knox was transported to the Davison County Jail where he is being held without bond for DNA testing. Each of the five charges hold a $75,000 bond according to the Davidson County Sheriffs Office.
