Ohio State Dismisses Storm Klein After Domestic Violence Arrest

Urban Meyer has dismissed senior linebacker Storm Klein from the Ohio State Buckeyes football team following his arrest on charges of domestic violence and assault. Klein was arrested Friday night in Columbus, Ohio. The charges stem from an alleged altercation between Klein and a woman about their relationship, which left the woman with injuries to the forearms and head, according to court testimony.

Meyer spoke about the dismissal in a press release, and some of his quotes were passed along by Tim May of the Columbus Dispatch.

Meyer also said that Ohio State will reevaluate Klein's status if there are any changes in the charges against him.

Klein was expected to compete for playing time with sophomore linebacker Curtis Grant this fall. He's made 10 starts in his Buckeyes career and has played in 38 total games.
