OSU player arrested for disorderly conduct

By The Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio State linebacker Fred Pagac Jr. was arrested and charged with persistent disorderly conduct when police said they found him trying to fight outside a bar near campus.

A court complaint said Pagac was intoxicated and trying to fight another person early Sunday morning, about 12 hours after the Buckeyes' homecoming win over San Jose State. An officer told Pagac to stop, but he continued to try to fight.

He was arrested at 3:45 a.m. and was released from Franklin County jail at 5 a.m. after he posted bond.

Persistent disorderly conduct is a fourth-degree misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum 30 days in jail and up to a $250 fine. Pagac is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Franklin County Municipal Court.

An Ohio State athletics department spokesman said coach Jim Tressel would have no comment until he had a chance to meet with Pagac.

Pagac's father is a former Ohio State defensive coordinator and current Oakland Raiders defensive assistant coach.
