Backup cornerback Dominic Clarke won't travel with Ohio State to its game at No. 16 Illinois after being arrested for disorderly conduct for allegedly discharging a BB gun on campus.
Ohio State Deputy Chief of Police Richard Morman said Thursday that no one was hurt in the shootings about 9 p.m. Sunday outside a university-run restaurant.
Clarke, a criminology major, has 11 tackles and has broken up three passes this season for the Buckeyes (3-3, 0-2 Big Ten).
''This is isolated. He's very remorseful. Just a little thing that happened on campus,'' interim coach Luke Fickell said Thursday. ''It's not something we're dwelling upon.''
Fifteen Buckeyes have been suspended or held out of games this season due to NCAA or legal problems or breaking team rules.
