After being dismissed from the Ohio State football team after being charged with domestic violence, senior linebacker Storm Klein was reinstated to the program on Thursday after those charges were dropped. Klein pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of misdemeanor disorderly conduct on Wednesday which prompted Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer to reinstate him to the program.
Klein will still be subject to a minimum two-game suspension as well as other “discipline” from Meyer. But Klein is indeed back in the fold in Columbus.
Meanwhile, his mother Melanie Klein was on an internet crusade on Thursday to defend her son in the comments of a Bleacher Report posts entitled, “Ohio State Football: Regardless of Charges, Storm Klein Should Not Be a Buckeye”. It was there where mother Klein took on the haters and explained why Storm “deserves to be an Ohio State Football player”.
May be time for mother Klein to step away from the keyboard.
