Criminal charges against former Ohio State football great Jim Stillwagon have been dropped.

It’s been a little over a year since the former OSU linebacker was arrested in what police described as a road rage incident that spanned 14 miles and two counties.

Arrest records said Stillwagon and another driver had some type of incident near Plain City, and the situation escalated all the way to a Delaware off-ramp. That’s where the other driver said Stillwagon got off his motorcycle and fired several shots at his vehicle.

Stillwagon was indicted and faced four counts of felonious assault, but those charges were dismissed by a judge Friday. He ruled there was insufficient evidence that Stillwagon did anything wrong.

Stillwagon’s attorneys argued he only shot in self-defense.
