GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Former NFL running back Dave Meggett was charged with second-degree rape of his former girlfriend.

Meggett, who played for 10 seasons with the New York Giants, New England Patriots and New York Jets, is accused of raping the 27-year-old woman Wednesday or Thursday at her home, Pitt County Sheriff's Detective P.E. Moore said Friday.

"They were having some problems," Moore said, adding that the couple had an on-again, off-again relationship for about five years. "He wanted to get back with her and she didn't. He came over to see her and things went bad."

Authorities were notified early Thursday, Moore said. Meggett turned himself in to Robersonville police in neighboring Martin County on Thursday. He remained in the Pitt County Jail on Friday with bond set at $200,000.
