Illegal Touching: Buckeye Recruit Arrested
More Buckeye hijinks. First the Maurice Clarett scandal, then tattoogate, now this. Carter is a 6-4, 325 pound offensive lineman, so he truly was a big man on campus. He was expected to sign with Ohio State, so you know he didn't have to resort to such tactics to get a piece of chicken if you know what I mean.
A 15 year old girl told police that Carter came to one of her classes and told her to come with him to measure her for an ROTC uniform. They proceeed to a room behind the schools auditorium. He then went into action, alledgedly.
“Once inside the room, (Carter) asked the victim to take off her sweat shirt and shirt so he could take her measurements,” the police report said. “He cut off the lights … and stated `I need you to take your bra off.’ The arrested male than put his arms under her arms from behind and attempted to pull her bra up.”
The police are investigating whether he fondled at least eight other girls. Jim Tressel was giving this kid a scholarship? We all know Tressel recruits questionable players, but that usually surfaces when they get there, not before arrival.
“He is not guilty and we will proceed with it. I know that he’s innocent. He’s a nice kid.” said Harvey Bruner, Carter's attorney.
According to Bruner the scholarship is being held for Carter. Considering the clouds swirling around the Buckeyes, Tressel needs to pull the offer until further notice. If he's guilty, he's gotta go. I know every kid's not a saint but if he has problems now, he'll have them later.
