More on arrests

1
544

Here’s a final list that I’ve compiled that’s includes the legal brushes that have occurred during the Urban Meyer era. It includes 21 arrests in which players spent the night in jail and three more cases in which players received citations and were charged with a crime. So based on the semantics, you can count the arrest number at either 21 or 24. There are a few more incidents that I’ve found (e.g. the alleged Dee Webb, Kenneth Tookes shooting) in which there were no arrests and charges weren’t filed.

Of the 21 arrests, four involved players recruited by Zook and 15 involved Meyer recruits and two were walk-ons.

Here’s the list, based on my research:
