Ohio State football player Marcus Baugh was arrested Sunday for underage possession/consumption of alcohol and for displaying improper identification, according to a Franklin County Municipal Court public record.
According to the record, Baugh was arrested by OSU Police at 11th Avenue and High Street, where the South Campus Gateway is located. Baugh was released on a $1,000 bond and his arraignment was scheduled for 9 a.m. Monday where he pleaded not guilty.
Both offenses are listed as M1 misdemeanors, which are punishable by up to six months in jail and/or up to a $1,000 fine.
Baugh, a 6’4″ 230-pound tight end from Riverside, Calif., is an incoming freshman at OSU. He was considered a four-star recruit coming out of high school by major recruiting services Scout, Rivals, ESPN and 247Sports.
Baugh was not yet enrolled during spring semester, and therefore did not participate in spring football drills.
Upon asking the football team for a statement regarding Baugh’s arrest, an OSU spokesman told The Lantern that it is “aware of the situation.”
Baugh did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
