According to Richie Whitt of the Sportatorium (via PFT), former Dallas Cowboy and Ohio State alum Terry Glenn was busted last week at a hotel for public intox and marijuana possession. Reportedly, Glenn was also seen roaming the halls of the hotel naked.
This marks the third arrest of the wide receiver that Bill Parcells famously referred to as “she”. Glenn was also arrested for public intox in 2005 — an arrest that occurred after officers spotted him taking a leak behind a fast food restuarant. In 2001, Terry Glenn was arrested for assault the mother of this son.
The continued legal troubles of Terry Glenn begs the question: What is it with ex-Ohio State WRs?
Let’s rundown the litany of issues faced by pass catchers who went to THE Ohio State University:
- See above
- Suspended during 2008 season;
- His father claimed that OSU and Jim Tressel were out to “end his career”.
- Busted earlier this year with pot in his car;
- Nude photos surface on the Internet;
- Admits being a rabbit terrorist growing up;
- Admit to dealing drugs while growing up.
- Suspected of DFDUI (Declaring for Draft Under the Influence…of something) for going pro despite having a terrible junior season and being a white WR.
- Arrested for assaulting a ticket agent at Burlington International Airport;
- Arrested for DUI before being released by Bucs;
- Was suspended 4 games for violating NFL steroid policy;
- Suspended for senior season at Ohio State after signing with sports agent Norby Walters;
- Flunked three drugs tests in Philadelphia while battling addictions to alcohol and cocaine (but to his credit, overcame the problems, became an ordained minister, and has helped countless others fight their own problems).
- Arrested while a freshman at OSU and charged with disorderly conduct and marijuana possession.
That is a lot of trouble for players from one position of one school. So I guess, when we look at the history of Ohio State WRs, or really just Ohio State football players in general (considering Maurice Clarret and Alex Boone as additional examples), Terry Glenn’s recent arrest isn’t really all that surprising.
The moral of the story: Ohio State WRs appear to be as bad at running away from the cops and trouble as they are at getting separation from SEC DBs.
