Police say Ohio State University football player Tracy Sprinkle has been arrested on charges of cocaine possession, rioting and failure to disperse after a bar fight in northeast Ohio.
A Lorain police report says Sprinkle was arrested early Saturday after police responded to a fight at the Grown N/Sexy 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 Sunday awaiting a court appearance. No attorney was listed for him.
