Found June 02, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:

Some odd news coming out of central Ohio today, as it appears that the Buckeyes No. 1 tight end was arrested earlier this morning. The incident took place in tiny Shawnee Hills near the Columbus Zoo, and here’s what 10TV in Columbus has as its report for now:

Ohio State senior tight end Jake Stoneburner was arrested on Saturday and was charged with obstructing official business.

According to the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office, Stoneburner, 22, was arrested sometime on Saturday by the Shawnee Hills police.

The circumstances of his arrest were not immediately released.

OSU’s The Lantern also has a story on this, but there are very few additional details there as well, just the time of arrest and that he posted bond. Stoneburner is projected to have a larger role in Urban Meyer’s offense, which traditionally promotes more play by its athletic tight ends. We’ll let you know if any more details ever surface from this odd story.
