Cameron Harrison, 18, has been put on house arrest and banned from his school’s campus after the arrest on rape allegations.

An Alabama teenage girl is being vilified by her peers after she reported a high school football star for allegedly raping her, authorities said Thursday.

Daphne police officers are investigating threats the 16-year-old victim has been receiving through social media after she claimed 18-year-old Cameron Harris sexually assaulted her while she was unconscious and drunk at a house party over the weekend.

“She’s the topic of a whole high school,” Capt. Jud Beedy told the Daily News. “Unfortunately, the verbal judo is affecting her. ‘He didn’t do it, she asked for it.’ Just nonsense chatter. It’s really upsetting her. Can’t you imagine?”

An overwhelming majority of students at Spanish Fort High School have sided with their star running back who was arrested Wednesday and charged with first-degree rape.

Police say Harrison raped the victim while she was “passed out” in a room during a wild house party last Saturday.

The teen attacker arrogantly apologized to the victim’s parents and allegedly confessed before he turned himself into police, according to authorities.

“He showed up at their house and told them he wanted to get his side of the story out and admitted to having intercourse with their daughter,” Cpl. Det. Jason Vannoy told the News.

“He did it in an arrogant fashion,” Vannoy added. “The tone was arrogant, and their reaction was not a positive one.”

The apology was “more about him than the victim,” Fox 10 reported.

Harrison has scored 10 touchdowns this season and rushed for 655 yards, statistics show.

The team will have to make do without the 5-foot-8 athlete in the 6A high school football playoffs, which begin Friday evening. The school is ranked sixth overall in football in the state.

Harrison has been banned from the high school, must wear an ankle monitor and is on house arrest, according to AL.com.

School officials did not immediately return a request for comment Thursday.
