Ohio State tailback Jaamal Berry has now been charged with misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct, for punching a man in the face and then bragging about it; according to a police report. Well, at least he didn’t brag about it.

Berry has been suspended from the Buckeyes football team for “violation of the university’s student-athlete code of conduct.” An Ohio St. University statement added, “Berry will remain suspended until charges filed against him have been resolved.”

Berry, a third-year sophomore from Miami, Fla., has just three carries for five yards and two passes for 14 yards on the season. His playing time has diminished since the return of Daniel “Boom” Herron.

This incident is not the first time Berry has been involved with extra-curricular fisticuffs and ballyhoo.

According to the AP:

“Franklin County Municipal Court records show the 20-year-old Berry was charged Wednesday in the alleged Oct. 21 attack shortly before 2:30 a.m. in downtown Columbus.

A police report shows a 21-year-old man said Berry punched him with a closed fist after an argument and that a witness was hit as he tried to break up the fight. Another witness said Berry bragged about what he had done. There were no serious injuries.”

Well, at least no one was seriously hurt. Ohio State could really do without more negative publicity though don’t you think? They’ve certainly had their share in 2010-11.
