Former Ohio State offensive lineman Kirk Barton charged with assaulting a police officer

Ohio authorities charged former Ohio State University offensive lineman Kirk Barton with felony assault of a police officer.

Barton, 33, was charged Monday following his arrest outside the Bogey Bar & Grill in Dublin.

The Delaware County Sheriff’s office said an intoxicated Barton was at the bar Friday when management asked deputies to remove him from the premises.

The 6-foot-6-inch Barton was reportedly stumbling and knocking people over due to his massive size.

Deputies escorted Barton to a taxi van without incident and were helping retrieve his license after failing to provide his address.

According to Cleveland.com, officers and the taxi driver were trying to determine the address when police say Barton slammed the van’s sliding door on a deputy’s arm.

It is unclear whether the officer sustained any injuries.
