Klein was arraigned Saturday morning at 9 a.m., pleading not guilty to the charges at Franklin County Municipal Court. He was released on bond, but Judge Scott D. Vanderkarr issued a Temporary Protection Order against Klein, which prohibits him from entering the home of or engaging with the individual who first reported the domestic violence and assault chargers.
“We are aware of the situation and I can confirm the identity,” OSU spokesperson Jerry Emig said in an email early Saturday morning.
“We are in the process of gathering more information. At this point we won’t have further comment until after we know and understand all the details.”
The senior from Licking Valley is in his fourth season at Ohio State. He is a three-year letterman who started 10 games for the Buckeyes a year ago, but injuries kept him from practicing much in the spring.
Klein is expected to be suspended from the team by Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer, just as tight end Jake Stoneburner and Jack Mewhort were after their arrests earlier this summer.
