COLUMBUS --- Seven days before Ohio State announced his dismissal from its football program, freshman defensive back DerJuan Gambrell was jailed in Columbus on misdemeanor charges of assault, menacing and unlawful restraint.
Gambrell, a Rogers graduate, was arrested at an OSU dormitory at 12:32 p.m. Jan. 8 and booked at the Franklin County Jail. Gambrell was released from jail the following evening at 6:50 on his own recognizance. A police report on the incident that precipitated Gambrell's arrest was unavailable Monday because of the holiday.
A pretrial is set for Feb. 15.
OSU announced Sunday that new coach Urban Meyer had dismissed Gambrell and defensive back Dominic Clarke from the program. Clarke was charged with drunken driving Jan. 7.
