Former Buckeye Clarett Arrested Again
Former Ohio State running back Maurice Clarett was arrested early Wednesday after a brief police chase in east Columbus. Police had to use stop sticks to bring the sport utility vehicle Clarett was driving to a halt. Columbus Police Sgt. Michael Woods said Clarett resisted arrest and was a "handful." Woods said police, "attempted to Taser this person. Then come to find out they could not tase him, he was wearing a bulletproof vest at the time, so the Taser was having no effect. [Police] ended up using mace before they finally got him handcuffed and placed into a wagon." When police checked the vehicle Clarett was driving, they found three loaded handguns, an assault weapon, a half-empty bottle of vodka and a bulletproof vest on the front seat. Clarett is already awaiting trial on robbery charges. He is accused of robbing two people outside a Columbus bar on New Year's Day. Columbus station WBNS, NBC4i and the Columbus Dispatch will be updating this story throughout the day.
