COLUMBUS (AP/92.3 The Fan) — Two Ohio State football players who were arrested by police last week have been suspended by head coach Urban Meyer indefinitely pending the outcome of their legal troubles.
Ohio State issued a statement Monday saying that Meyer had suspended senior tight end Jake Stoneburner and junior offensive tackle Jack Mewhort after they were arrested by police on a misdemeanor charge of obstructing official business.
The school said it had no further comment.
Stoneburner and Mewhort were arrested around 2:30 a.m. Saturday by police in Shawnee Hills, northwest of Columbus, near Muirfield Village Golf Club, where the Memorial Tournament was being held.
Both players were allegedly caught urinating between buildings and were released after posting $2,000 bond.
Stoneburner, a 22-year-old Dublin native, caught 14 passes last season, seven for touchdowns. Mewhort is a junior from Toledo.
They are due in court June 11.
