Report: Ohio State WR C.J. Saunders arrested for violating Columbus curfew
Ohio State wide receiver C.J. Saunders was reportedly arrested after violating Columbus’s curfew on Monday night. The city imposed a curfew that extended from 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. due to city-wide protests.
Per Cleveland.com, Saunders was arrested for being out at 10:45 p.m. in Columbus. It was unclear whether or not Saunders was participating in a protest or if he was out for other purposes.
Saunders posted bond on Tuesday morning and his arraignment on a misdemeanor charge for violation of curfew will be Thursday.
Saunders was elected a team captain for the 2019 season but was unable to play due to injuries. He has been working on the chance to receive a medical hardship waiver from the NCAA to have a sixth year of eligibility.
On Monday, Ohio State’s football team posted an anti-racism video that called for everyone to fight for a change. Saunders was one of over a dozen Buckeye football players who participated in the video.
