The Twitter-crazy booster who had allegedly been the reason for the decommitment of a recruit has been arrested in violation of parole stemming from his registration as a sex offender in the state of Kentucky.

Charles Eric Waugh, 31, met recruit Alex Anzalone and several other recruits following the Ohio State spring game on April 21 where he took several pictures and posted them on his Twitter page that has since been taken down. Anzalone reportedly had no knowledge of Waugh’s background when that photo was taken. After learning he was a registered sex offender, one who had pleaded guilty to five counts of possession of underage sexual content in 2008, Anzalone — with the support of his father — pulled his commitment to the Buckeyes.

Waugh, who also sent many messages to current players and recruits via Twitter, was in violation of Kentucky Revised Statute 17.546, which states sex offenders will not knowingly or intentionally use social networking services to interact with a person who is under the age of 18.

Sal Anzalone, the father of Alex, said while is son is still decommitted from The Ohio State University, the Buckeyes are not totally off the board. He also backed off of his original comments that “something was not right with Ohio State.” Anzalone is presently one of the top linebacking recruits in the country.
