Warning to college football athletes. If you get arrested for any sort of violation, expect for your coach to come down with the hammer.

Ohio State University announced they dismissed senior linebacker Storm Klein on Saturday just hours after Klein was arrested and charged with a count of domestic violence and assault. Klein pleaded not guilty to those charges in court Saturday morning.

"The charges filed against Klein violate the core values of the Ohio State football program," Meyer said in a school release. "As a result, Storm has been removed from the team. It has been made very clear that this type of charge will result in dismissal. "If there are any changes in the charges, we will re-evaluate his status."
Klein played in 38 games in his career and started 10 games last season, recording 45 total tackles and one interception.
