Jason Simmons, a former Ohio State defensive end and team captain who played in NFL Europe, was arrested for having sex with a 14-year-old girl. Allegedly, of course.
Charges of sexual battery and importuning were filed against Simmons on Wednesday in Vandalia Municipal Court. Simmons, 36, assists special-needs students at Northmont Middle School and is an assistant football coach at Northmont High School.
The possibility that the 14-year-old girl in question is a special-ed student terrifies me. On the other hand, a 14-year-old girl with a learning disability has about the same intellectual capacity as most OSU football players, so I guess I can see how it happened.

UPDATE: The middle-school girl in question was NOT a special-needs student. And I went with the unrelated mural pic just because I love the mural pic.
