Well, this didn't take long. Ohio State head football coach Urban Meyer has kicked Storm Klein off the team after the linebacker charged with misdemeanor domestic violence and assault charges.
“It has been made very clear that this type of charge will result in
dismissal,” Meyer said in a statement. “If there are any changes in the
charges, we will re-evaluate his status.”Klein, a linebacker from
Licking Valley High School near Newark, was arraigned in Franklin County
Municipal Court yesterday morning and pleaded not guilty to the charges
after his arrest at his Columbus apartment. He was in handcuffs at the
arraignment and was represented by a public defender. Afterward, he and
his family retained attorney Larry James, who last night seized on the
second part of Meyer’s statement.“I appreciate that the university has kept the door open” for a
possible return, James said. “The facts I think will bode very well in
Storm Klein’s favor.”
