Mr. Olympia Shawn Rhoden Charged With 2018 Rape

Current Mr. Olympia Shawn Rhoden has had an arrest warrant issued against him in Utah for two first and one second degree felonies. According to the Deseret News, Rhoden, 44, is being charged with rape, object rape and forcible sexual assault from an incident that allegedly occurred in his hotel room on October 12, 2018.

The report further stated that there was a DNA sample collected from the woman’s body that matched Rhoden.


The complainant/victim was not identified due to the nature of the accused crime, but it did state that she is a “competitive bodybuilder” and that she viewed Rhoden as a “mentor.”

There are obviously a lot of questions that need too be answered before any conclusions can be made, but it does seem odd that the arrest warrant was drawn up nearly nine months after the alleged incident took place. And if the evidence was collected off the woman’s body, that would lead one to surmise that she did in fact report it early on.

We will update this story as soon as more information is obtained.
