Two Ohio Football Players Arrested, Suspended

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

Four days before it opens its 2013 season against a top 10 opponent, the Ohio Bobcats are in the news for the wrong reasons.

Two OU players, cornerback Larenzo Fisher and third string quarterback Greg Windham, have been arrested and charged with felony drug counts. Both players have been suspended indefinitely.

The Athens Messenger has more:

Fisher is charged with four counts of aggravated trafficking in drugs, each a fourth-degree felony. Windham is charged with one count of aggravated trafficking in drugs, also a fourth-degree felony.

According to a news release from the police department, the warrants were issued as a result of "ongoing, joint drug investigations" by OUPD, the Athens Police Department and Athens County Prosecutor's Office. The charges stem from the alleged sale of MDMA, also known as ecstasy, in April and May.

Fisher, a junior who started 11 games for the Bobcats last season, was already set to miss the first two games of the 2013 season as discipline for an off-season charge of misdemeanor assault from back in May. Windham is a redshirt freshman who was battling to be Ohio's third-string quarterback this season.

Though neither player would have had an impact on Sunday's game, there's no question that this is an unwanted distraction for Frank Solich and company to have to deal with on opening week.
