ATHENS, Ohio (AP) — A football player for No. 25 Ohio University has been arrested after police say he and four other men attacked a freshman who had been sitting on a bench.
Nineteen-year-old Mike Lucas was charged with felonious assault on Monday following the incident early Sunday morning.
The redshirt freshman offensive lineman from Chicago has a hearing set for Oct. 25 in Athens County Municipal Court. A judge will decide whether there's probable cause to refer the case for prosecution in common pleas court.
Team spokesman Tom Symonds says Lucas has been suspended pending the investigation.
A message left for Lucas was not immediately returned Tuesday.
Lucas had seen action in the unbeaten Bobcats' wins over New Mexico State, Marshall, Norfolk State and Massachusetts. Ohio is ranked for the first time since 1968.
