Additional arrest I found in news stories:
Jonathon Skeete – May 2005
Alex Boone – April 2006
Antonio Henton – September 2007
Doug Worthington – July 2008
Eugene Clifford – July 2008
Nathan Williams - December 2008
And some other problems:
Troy Smith suspension for taking money
Santonio Holmes arrested this past summer
Boone arrest last week
Clarrett legal situation and arrest
Ray Small suspension
That was just some stuff I came up with quickly.
I think there might be a problem at OSU but I think the situation has definitely improved since the end of 2004. I think Tressel has run a tighter ship and some of the problems have been isolated and unrelated. I am as big a Buckeye fan as there is but I still recognize there has been a large number of legal problems since Tressel took over in 2001.
The best part about Antonio Henton is (even if he was joking, which I believe he was) he offered a cop posing as a hooker $20 when he only had $18 or $19 on him. Shrewd negotiation skills, Mr. Henton.
I think too much was made out of the Antonio Henton incident, but I still can't help but laugh that he had negotiated a price of $20 and didn't have $20 on him.
