UPDATE: NBC4 has issued a correction on their original story, while Tressel said the report is "inaccurate".

NBC4 is reporting Buckeye defenders Storm Klein and Nathan Williams have been charged with misdemeanor assault stemming from an incident early Sunday morning.

Officers were dispatched to Riverside Methodist Hospital on an assault report at about 4:17 a.m. The 20-year-old victim said he was at a birthday party his friend threw for him at a house off East 15th Avenue.  The victim said he woke up and found two people harassing his girlfriend. He said he told the two males to stop. The victim said the males knocked him to the ground and began punching him. The victim suffered a cut under his right eye, and the injury required stitches.

If true, this would be a second strike of sorts for Williams, who was arrested for shoplifting as a freshman in December of 2008.
