COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State linebacker Storm Klein has pleaded not guilty to charges of domestic violence and assault after being arrested by Columbus police Friday.
The senior who started 10 games last year was told to stay away from the person who filed a complaint against him.
He appeared in Franklin County Municipal Court represented by a public defender. A message seeking comment was left Saturday.
The university says it’s aware of the arrest.
Klein is one of several linebackers vying for a starting job with the Buckeyes.
Two other expected starters for Urban Meyer’s first Ohio State team were suspended in June after being arrested on a misdemeanor charge of obstructing official business.
