Ohio State senior linebacker Storm Klein has been reinstated to the team following a reduction of domestic violence charges. Head coach Urban Meyer made the announcement Thursday night.
Klein will be suspended a minimum of two games.
“As I had indicated previously, if there are any changes in the charges against Storm, I would re-evaluate his status,” Meyer said. “The charges that would have violated our core values have been totally dismissed. I have spoken extensively to members of both families and that has prompted me to re-assess his situation and allow him back.”
Klein was arrested in July and charged with domestic violence after allegedly striking the mother of his child. The day after the alleged incident, Meyer dismissed Klein from the football team. On Wednesday, Klein plead to a lesser charge of misdemeanor disorderly conduct. A Franklin County judge sentenced Klein to 18 months probation and fined him court costs.
Klein started 10 games in 2011, but was passed over on the depth chart in spring practice.
