COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State defensive end Tracy Sprinkle has pleaded not guilty to charges of possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia, rioting and failure to disperse after a weekend bar fight in Lorain, Ohio.

Also on Monday, coach Urban Meyer kicked the 19-year-old redshirt freshman off the team pending the outcome of his legal problems.

Sprinkle, expected to contribute as a backup defensive lineman this fall, was arrested early Saturday after the fight at the Lorain bar. The police report says the Elyria, Ohio, native was first charged with rioting and failure to disperse and later with drug possession after suspected cocaine was found hidden in the seat of a police car where Sprinkle was held.
