Report: Arrested Ohio State players suspended indefinitely
The players were arrested Saturday — along with a third person unaffiliated with the football program — on a charge of obstructing official business.
The players’ lawyer, Columbus attorney Mark Collins, told The Blade that they will not be allowed to participate in any team activities or be allowed on the football facilities.
The Blade reports that the two players and the third person were spotted “urinating outside a restaurant near Stoneburner’s house, located just off the course at Muirfield Village Golf Club.”
Collins told the paper that he hopes the players can work something out with the police department before their arraignment on June 11.
“Hopefully we can sit down with the Shawnee Hills police department and the prosecutors and come up with a resolution that everyone can be satisfied with,” Collins said.
The Buckeyes are entering their first year under new head coach Urban Meyer. Mewhort is expected to be the team’s starting left tackle. Stoneburner, a wide receiver, tied for the team lead in catches last season and led the team in touchdown receptions with seven.
