LORAIN, Ohio — Ohio State football player Tracy Sprinkle has been arrested on charges of cocaine possession, rioting and failure to disperse after a bar fight in northeast Ohio.

OSU spokesman Jerry Emig said Sunday that the 19-year-old defensive end was suspended from the team because of the arrest.

A Lorain police report says Sprinkle was arrested early Saturday after police responded to a fight at a bar and found large groups fighting inside and outside the bar.

The report says Sprinkle was first charged with rioting and failure to disperse and later with drug possession after suspected cocaine was found hidden in the seat of a police car where Sprinkle was held.

Sprinkle was in jail awaiting a court appearance Monday.
