From the Lantern:
Ohio State redshirt senior Jake Stoneburner and redshirt junior Jack Mewhort have been suspended indefinitely from the football team, according to a Sunday night report from the Toledo Blade.
Stoneburner and Mewhort were arrested early Saturday morning for allegedly urinating in public and running from police.
Mark Collins, a Columbus-based attorney, said the football players learned of their suspension Sunday, and would be barred from the Woody Hayes Athletic Center until their case is resolved.
The arraignment is scheduled for June 11 at the Delaware County Municipal Court.
Stoneburner told NBC4 Saturday night that he expected charges to be dropped Monday.
Representatives from the Department of Athletics did not immediately respond Sunday night to The Lantern’s request for comment regarding the suspensions.
Shawnee Hills Police arrested Stoneburner and Mewhort for “obstructing official business” at about 2:30 a.m. Saturday by the Bogey Inn near Dublin, Ohio.
Police said they spotted Stoneburner, Mewhort and a third person unaffiliated with the OSU football program, Austin Barnard, urinating in between buildings. When they attempted to confront the three individuals, police said they ran away.
Two of the suspects were found trying to hide in between vehicles in a parking lot being used for this past weekend’s Memorial Tournament. The third person fled into the woods, but was ultimately caught by police after threatening to use a police dog.
