“Nothing good ever happens after 10 PM”- Jim Tressel
“Nothing good ever happens on Fridays…” Urban Meyer?
Reports Friday night surfaced that charges were filed earlier in the day against Senior Buckeye linebacker Storm Klein. Klein is expected to be arraigned on Saturday.
The official report (Case No. 2012 CR B 016728) cites allegations of domestic violence and assault, and has a 9:00 am trip to the courthouse on the schedule. This would be Klein’s second assault incident; charges were dropped in a case from August of 2010.
Klein, from Licking Valley in Hanover Ohio, started for ten contests during the 2011 season, but slipped to second team behind rising sophomore Curtis Grant.
If accurate, this will be the second “legal issue” for Meyer’s Buckeyes, following Stoneburner and Mewhort’s bladder control issues during the Memorial tournament.
In that case, both students were stripped of their scholarships, although they are working toward being restored to their places on the team.
Earlier, Jamaal Berry and Dominick Clark both saw their places on the team revoked following legal issues that occurred early in Meyer’s tenure.
It’s important to note that, at this time, the process is still ongoing- including any investigation, hearing, and potential sanctioning. As such, speculation regarding his tenure with the university or the football program are unwise.
We’ll keep you updated as this develops.
