Arraignment for former OSU star continued

Staff report

Maurice Clarett

An arraignment for a former Ohio State star running back who was arrested in Morrow County was continued Thursday following a scheduling issue with his defense attorney.

Maurice Clarett was charged with driving under the influence Sunday, according to the State Highway Patrol.

Officials said he was stopped by changing lanes without signaling and witnesses said he was “swerving erratically.”

No rescheduled date has been set.

Clarett has had legal issues after leaving Ohio State after one year. He served four years in prison and had recently toured the country as an inspirational speaker.
