O$U player arrested for domestic violence



The recent rough patch Ohio State has dealt with in the offseason doesn't appear to be over yet.

Another member of the two-deep was arrested on Friday, and senior Storm Klein is facing one charge of domestic violence and one for assault, according to a Franklin County Municipal Court case summary.

Klein's arrest provides coach Urban Meyer with another early bit of adversity.

An Ohio State official confirmed on Saturday that the 6-foot-3, 240-pounder with blonde hair named in the report was Klein and that it was gathering details about the incident involving the senior who left spring practice as the backup at middle linebacker.

"We are aware, obviously, of the situation," a school spokesman said in a statement. "We are in the process of gathering more information. "At this point we won't have further comment until after we know and understand all the details."

Klein was scheduled for arraignment on Saturday morning, and he is likely to face punishment from Meyer at some point after that based on precedent the new coach has already set.

Storm started 10 games for the Buckeyes last season and posted 45 tackles while also chipping in an interception, a sack, a forced fumble and a recovery. But he wasn't able to hold on to a first-team role after the first camp under Meyer, losing his spot to Curtis Grant.

The program has dealt with a couple other issues with his two-deep since it was released in May, including the recent arrests of starting tight end Jake Stoneburner and offensive tackle Jack Mewhort after an incident stemming from public urination in early June. Meyer acted swiftly and decisively in that case, suspending both players indefinitely before ultimately removing their scholarships for the duration of the summer and setting requirements that must be met before reinstatement.

The off-the-field struggles continued later in the month, though the injury to running back Jordan Hall was an accident and did not involve a legal matter of any kind. The projected starter in the backfield cut a tendon in his foot while walking in a yard without shoes, and he is expected to miss 10 weeks after undergoing surgery to repair the damage.[/quote]
