COLUMBUS, Ohio - Two expected starters for Urban Meyer's first Ohio State team have been suspended from the team.
Ohio State issued a statement Monday saying that Meyer had suspended senior tight end Jake Stoneburner and junior offensive tackle Jack Mewhort after they were arrested by police on a misdemeanor charge of obstructing official business. The school said it had no further comment.
Stoneburner and Mewhort were arrested around 2:30 a.m. Saturday by police in Shawnee Hills, northwest of Columbus, near Muirfield Village Golf Club, where the Memorial Tournament was being held.
No details about the misdemeanor counts against the pair were immediately available from police. The village office said the report on the incident would be released Tuesday.
