BN Free Skeete Suspended After Arrest By Bucknuts.com staff Date: May 11, 2005 Ohio State has announced that redshirt freshman kicker Jonathan Skeete has been suspended following an early morning arrest on an outstanding warrant for drug trafficking. Ohio State football coach Jim Tressel has suspended kicker Jonathan Skeete for violation of team rules. According to police reports, Skeete was arrested early Wednesday morning by University Police on a warrant for trafficking in marijuana. Details were still sketchy on when and why the arrest warrant naming Skeete had been filed. "Jonathan Skeete has been suspended indefinitely, pending the outcome of the legal process," Tressel said in a university release. "We will evaluate his status with the team after this issue has been resolved. This is a very serious issue and we will treat it as such." Skeete, a freshman place-kicker from Gahanna, Ohio, was redshirted in 2004. He figured to be the backup to Josh Huston in 2005. He hit a 43-yard field goal in the spring game in April. OSU added Skeete as a late signee in June 2004. A strong student at Gahanna-Lincoln High School, Skeete picked OSU over Northwestern. He had reportedly been approved for an academic scholarship of some sort at NU.
