An alleged July sexual attack against a teenage girl has led to the arrest of a Florence High School football player. Earlier today, authorities arrested 18 year old Maxwell Marquez Thompson, aka Maxwell Anjer Thompson, charging him with rape and sexual abuse in the reported West Florence attack. Sources say the alleged victim was not a student at Florence High.
Thompson played junior high ball at Deshler in Tuscumbia, but had been enrolled at Florence for three years, where he plays cornerback for the Falcons. He was scheduled to graduate in 2018. He remains in the Lauderdale County Detention Center as of late Friday afternoon on 75K bond.
