Report: Buckeye Jaamal Berry arrested
June 11, 2009 - Florida's CBS4 is reporting that Ohio State star running back recruit Jaamal Berry has been arrested on marijuana possession, though little more information is available at this time. A search of the Miami-Dade Clerk's website confirms this arrest.
Berry, out of Miami Palmetto, is one of the more highly-regarded incoming recruits in the country, though this could certainly hinder things.
While this is not a huge blow to the Buckeyes as it would be to, say, losing your star running back after he files a falsified police report for those items stolen out of his 'borrowed' dealership SUV... it should be a minor blow to the OSU depth chart. Then again, when your starting QB is also your starting RB, FB and is an overall DB, maybe you don't need a depth chart at that position.
Though this is not something Michigan fans can act like has not happened in the past, it does speak to the issue that certain teams are capable of recruiting athletes at a certain maturity/legality level. Every team is facing a loaded gun, sometimes literally, when it comes to a star prep athlete who has been showered with attention. That these student athletes then go off and do something dumb is not shocking but, rather, can lead one to miss the days when regional dynamics led to a 3-4 coach shuffle on where a player might go and not the circus it has become today.
Sweater vest's calm disappointment to follow...
From TMZ. He not only grew up in Columbus but also attended tOSU.
Same MO as Boone. Do they actually teach this at tOSU?
Former NFL superstar Terry Glenn was arrested in Dallas last week after cops say he was running around a hotel drunk out of his mind and carrying weed -- oh, and he may have been naked.
Glenn, who was released from the Dallas Cowboys over the summer, was charged with public intoxication and marijuana possession after he was allegedly causing a disturbance at the Extended Stay Deluxe Hotel around 10:30 PM.
Sources close to the situation tell TMZ the front desk received several complaints from guests -- but one person claimed they saw Glenn lying on the floor in a hallway with his pants down.
We're also told Glenn went off on the hotel employee who called the cops, saying "You don't f**kin' know me ... I don't give a f**k what you do ... get the f**k outta here!"
