Berry involved in an assault

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio State’s student newspaper is reporting that Buckeyes running back Jaamal Berry was treated and released at a hospital after what a police report termed an “assault” on another student.

The Ohio State Lantern, citing information from Ohio State police, reported Thursday that Berry was confused and disoriented after “wrestling” with another student on Wednesday morning on campus.

Ohio State spokesman Jerry Emig told The Associated Press on Thursday night, “We are aware of the situation yesterday. Medical professionals ran a battery of tests on (Berry). So far, no medical issue has been identified but the evaluation is continuing. No legal issues are involved.”

Emig said he could not say whether Berry would be available for Ohio State’s game on Saturday against Michigan State.
