COLUMBUS, Ohio — Per a report from the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram, Ohio State redshirt freshman defensive lineman Tracy Sprinkle was arrested on Friday on charges of possession of drugs, heroin, drug paraphernalia, and rioting/failure to disperse.
The report was confirmed by the Lorain police per the Chronicle-Telegram.
A report from ElevenWarriors.com had Sprinkle arrested for an "altercation at a bar" on Friday, and subsequently suspended indefinitely. Ohio State called the report of a suspension "premature", according to the Columbus Dispatch.
