COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State cornerback Dominic Clarke has been charged with drunken driving, less than three months after he was arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct.

Court records show Clarke pleaded not guilty Thursday in Franklin County court. He was charged Saturday with running a stop sign, speeding and operating a vehicle while impaired.

In October, Clarke was charged with disorderly conduct and fined after police said he discharged a BB gun on campus. No one was hurt.

His lawyer, Christopher Cooper, calls Clarke an excellent student and says “he’s no different than any 20-year-old and
shouldn’t be treated any different than any 20-year-old.”

The redshirt sophomore from Frederick, Md., played in 11 games this season.
