Ohio St. LB Storm Klein has been arrested and charged with assault and domestic violence.
A man matching the description of Buckeyes linebacker Storm Klein faces one charge of domestic violence and one for assault, according to a Franklin County Municipal Court case summary, perhaps providing new coach Urban Meyer with another early bit of adversity.
According to the court records, a 6-foot-3, 240-pound man with blonde hair named Storm Klein was arrested Friday and is scheduled for arraignment on Saturday morning. Ohio State officials had not confirmed Klein's identity as of late Friday night, but the descriptions in the report match closely with the senior who left spring practice as the backup at middle linebacker.
Klein started 10 games for the Buckeyes last season and posted 45 tackles while also recording 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.
It'll be interesting to see how Meyer handles this situation. Klein has previously been charged with assault, although the charges were dropped. These new charges, alone, are a dismissable offense at every Big Ten university.
Most Ohio St. fans are calling for the dismissal of Klein. I tend to think that Klein will be dismissed as well.
But let's not forget what happened at Florida. Wasn't it something like 41 arrests in 3 years? Well, he's seen 3 arrests just in the past 2 months. The Stoneburner and Mewhort punishments were just for show. This is Meyer's first big test as coach.
