Ex-Buckeye Maurice Clarett Indicted on New Charges

Former Ohio State tailback Maurice Clarett was indicted Thursday on new charges related to a highway chase and violent struggle with police.

Clarett, who was found with four loaded guns in his SUV, was indicted on five charges that include carrying a concealed weapon and two counts of failure to comply with an order from a police officer. He will be arraigned Monday.

Clarett was arrested Aug. 9 after authorities say he tried to flee a police officer. Police noticed a vehicle driving erratically, beginning a highway chase that ended when police spiked the tires of Clarett's SUV. Officers said their stun guns did not work on Clarett because he was wearing a bulletproof vest.

Clarett is set to go to trial on Sept. 18 on charges accusing him of robbing two people of a cell phone outside a bar early on New Year's Day.
