Just as the “Days Without An Arrest” ticker climbed into double digits, a member of the Ohio State football program has come to the rescue and hit the reset button.
According to Marcus Hartman of BuckeyeSports.com, cornerback Dominic Clarke has been cited for three traffic offenses, including operating a vehicle while impaired. Clarke was pulled over Jan. 7 in Franklin County (OH) for running a stop sign and speeding. Following the stop, it was found he had no proof of insurance as well.
There were no details as to what led to the OVI citation.
This actually represents the second legal issue Clarke’s run into the past three months. In October, he was charged with disorderly conduct for firing a “compressed air gun” from the roof of an on-campus building. That issue resulted in a one-game suspension.
As a redshirt sophomore, Clarke played in 12 games for the Buckeyes in 2011.
