Jaamal Berry No Longer On Ohio State Football Team

Ohio State running back Jaamal Berry was suspended from the team in November after being involved in a his second fight just a month after another alleged fight. Berry is being sued for allegedly beating up a man just a few weeks after being accused of using his teeth as a weapon in a fight. Berry is now no longer part of the Ohio State football team according to his attorney.

"My understanding is that ... (Berry's) desire would be to transfer somewhere else and so he could potentially get playing time. Whether he goes back to Florida or whether he goes somewhere else to go to school, I don't know," Robert Tobias, the assistant city prosecutor assigned to the case, told The Lantern. "It was told to me by the defense attorney that he was not on the team anymore and that he had a desire to relocate for school somewhere else out of state."

An Ohio State spokesperson however syas that Berry is still under scholarship in a statement to the Columbus Dispatch, "Officially, he is still on scholarship. He is not working out with the team, and he has not been involved with the team since October."

Jaamal Berry Suspended By Ohio State After Second Reported Fight

The Ohio St. Buckeyes have suspended sophomore running back Jaamal Berry due to a code of conduct violation, the school announced. That's one way to describe being sued for allegedly beating up a man just weeks after reportedly getting in a fight involving teeth used as weapons.

According to the alleged victim of the latest incident, Berry punched a man who'd just been hit by a car. He also said Berry bragged about the dustup minutes later. The victim attempted to get an ethnic intimidation charge tacked on, but wasn't able to. I don't really know what that means.

Berry hasn't played since the first alleged fight, which is still being investigated as a misdemeanor assault. In games this season against Toledo, Miami and Colorado, he's compiled 19 yards on five touches

Jaamal Berry Involved In Second Bizarre Fight, Faces Another Lawsuit

Ohio St. Buckeyes running back Jaamal Berry has been hit with a lawsuit which accuses him of attacking a 21-year-old man who sustained injuries to his head, face, neck, back and hand that required medical treatment on Friday.

The plaintiff has chosen "John Doe" status because he fears retaliation and is seeking at least $25,000 in compensatory and punitive damages.

The lawsuit consists of two counts: Assault and battery, and ethnic intimidation. The plaintiff alleges that Berry, who is black, yelled vulgarities at him before the attack and bragged to an independent witness after the attack that, "I just (expletive) up a white kid."

This would be different than the fight Berry got into on Wednesday, which is being investigated as misdemeanor assault.

Ohio State coach Luke Fickell said, "The legal process is going to take its time, and we’re going to go with that. That’s all we can do as a team and a program right now. Legal issues-wise, we’ve got nothing from the prosecutor."

Berry's status is on hold for this weekend's game against Wisconsin.

Berry has five touches for 19 yards this season.
