Former Ohio State football player Darron Lee was great when he was with the Buckeyes. He helped them win a national championship and was one of their best players while doing so. He was eventually a first-round pick by the New York Jets soon after.
Lee’s NFL career hasn’t really gone to plan. A combination of a PED suspension and poor play led to him being released by the Jets after just three years. He played for Kansas City and Buffalo after that. He was also on the Raiders’ practice squad. That will be the last of his NFL experience.
That’s because a warrant has now been issued for his arrest after he didn’t show up for court during a hearing for his domestic violence and assault charges that we told you about in the Spring. Lee is now wanted and I’m sure will soon be arrested.
Talka bout a fall from grace. I always liked Lee when he was with the Ohio State football program. He was in college at the same time I was and seemed like a nice dude. Unfortunately, things have gone a little haywire since those days with the Buckeyes.
Unfortunately, Lee is not the only former Buckeye with legal problems. We told you about Damon Arnette’s continuing battles with the law. It’s a shame to see both former Buckeyes finding themselves in this predicament. Hopefully, they can both turn their lives around.
It’s unclear at the moment when Lee will be brought in on this arrest warrant. We’ll have to see what happens from this moment on, but it can’t be good for the former linebacker. He needs to make some better choices. Showing up to court is a pretty easy one.
We’ll let you know about further developments as they happen with both Lee and Arnette.
