Two Ohio Bobcats arrested on felonies, suspended

A starting member of Ohio’s football team (not Brady Hoke‘s “Ohio,” incidentally) is one of two Bobcats who have found themselves in rather deep legal water shortly before the start of the 2013 season.

The Athens Messenger reported late Wednesday night that cornerback Larenzo Fisher (pictured) and quarterback Greg Windham were arrested earlier that day and slapped with multiple felony charges.  The former was charged with four counts of aggravated trafficking in drugs, each a fourth-degree felony; the latter was charged with one count of aggravated trafficking in drugs, also a fourth-degree felony.

The Ohio University Police Department stated that the arrests were the result of “ongoing, joint drug investigations” with multiple agencies at the local level.

As a result of the arrests, both players have been suspended indefinitely.  The Bobcats will open the season against No. 9 Louisville.

This is actually the second off-field incident involving Fisher in the past few months, with the defensive back arrested for misdemeanor assault back in May.  As a result of that arrest, Fisher had already been suspended for the first two games of the season.

Last season, Fisher started 11 games.

Windham is a redshirt freshman who is, or at least was, competing for the No. 3 quarterback job.

    How stupid can one be. I will never understand how people think. I bet both walk away with a slap on the hand. This happens way to much. Maybe if judges would lock this trash for 10-15 years it might help. At least the people that get locked up wont be hurting anyone else soon. There is no amount of time to much for those that wish to kill others. Don’t you liberal crybabies try and tell me any different. That is one problem with the legal system, to soft on pushers and sellers. Lock them up for a long time.

    How do you know it was prob just weed? That’s the way you libs think. Its ok to sell any drug. All drugs are illegal to sell. Even if it was just “weed” being stoned while driving can cause you to kill someone. Your liberal mind is a terrible thing to waste. I hope no one in your family is hurt or killed by a “just stoned” driver. Drugs that are taken are taken for a purpose, to get high,change the way you act or because you are just plain stupid and don’t care what effect it will or can have on yourself or others. Lock them up for a long time.

    And let’s keep wasting money on prosecuting “weed” related crimes because alcohol is so much better.

    First of all alcohol is a lot worse than marijuana and offers nothing in helping people with medical problems. And secondly there has never been a reported death from marijuana use.

    Car accidents happen all the time between drivers that are not under the influence so what’s your point? A drunk driver is far worse than a stoned driver.

    Let’s try keeping politics out of it. . .

    Keep thinking that, stoned driving kills just the same. Did I say alcohol was a good thing? Don’t think so. That’s the way you libs think. My drug of is not as bad as your drug. My drug is ok ,yours is not. If you cant see my point then you are not a very smart person. Why put things in to your body to impare anything you are doing. I bet your one of those people that don’t see anything wrong when idiots forget their kids are in the car when its 100 degrees outside, just so you can have a couple or a hit to calm you down after a hard day of waiting on you govt check.

    @mauldawg…I think I speak for many who enjoy this site when I ask you to take your ideas and political diarrhea to the FoxNews or Rush Limbaugh websites. You’ll fit in and everyone will love your ideas on how to save the world . Thank You

    Dont read my post,how about that. Story is about football players a drugs.

  8. sdemp says: Aug 30, 2013 2:41 PM

    I didn’t realize you had to be “impaired” to get into a car accident.

    There has never been a recorded death from the direct use of marijuana.

    Name calling is also classy.

    Weed is illegal and alcohol should be too. We got one. Lets just be grateful and not greedy.
