New Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer has dismissed two players for off-the-field problems.

Ohio State spokesman Jerry Emig confirmed yesterday that defensive backs Dominic Clarke and DerJuan Gambrell have been released from their scholarships.

Clarke was a redshirt sophomore from Frederick, Md., but was charged with drunken driving and also had been arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct after allegedly discharging a BB gun on campus. No one was hurt in the latter incident.

Gambrell is a freshman from Toledo and was also discharged for a “violation of team rules,” but Ohio State did not specify what that violation was.

    “… but was charged with drunken driving ….”

    Incorrect word drunken; he was charged with two different but related OVI charges + 2 other traffic charges for a total of four, all of which are pending.

    It’s a pity. OSU has a very nice firing range. It’s regularly open and accessible for any student who wishes to discharge air pistols or BB guns.
