Ohio State Football Player Arrested In NE Ohio

Jul 7, 2014

Lorain police say Ohio State University defensive end Tracy Sprinkle has been arrested on charges of cocaine possession, rioting and failure to disperse after a bar fight early Saturday. 

Sprinkle was suspended from the team because of the arrest. A Lorain police report says Sprinkle was arrested after police responded to a fight at the bar and found large groups fighting inside and outside. The report says Sprinkle was first charged with rioting and failure to disperse and later with drug possession after suspected cocaine was found hidden in the seat of a police car where Sprinkle was held. Sprinkle was in jail Sunday awaiting a court appearance.
